NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 3, 2012) - The Wall Street Journal reports that NUK and Gerber Graduates, two major players in the child products industry, are introducing items meant to improve the development of children. Included in these items are pacifiers that are intended to encourage proper oral development. Dr. Marvin Lagstein, a pediatric dentist, believes that the proper pacifier influences the need for orthodontics in a child's future.
The previously cited article asserts that pacifiers, bottles, and other feeding tools can impact a child's oral health. NUK, a brand that is known for its pacifiers, has launched a new line of products that are meant to further assist parents in creating a childhood conducive to proper oral development.
"The NUK® brand provides parents with a complete, best-of-class solution for nurturing babies through important milestones," commented Walter Lehneis, who is the Vice President of Marketing for the company. "By making a relatively small investment in the right early childhood products, parents can set their children on the right path physically and emotionally while helping to save themselves big money on curative procedures in the future."
The orthodontic pacifiers that NUK sells assist in the development and strengthening of the jaw muscles. Additionally, they allow babies to move their tongues in a greater range of motion. This, in particular, contributes to healthier development of speech. Furthermore, the pacifiers keep babies from sucking their thumbs, which can lead to the need for braces.
Dr. Marvin Lagstein appreciates the work that NUK is doing. He believes that, through the company's products, children can avoid the need to get braces.
"The use of the correct pacifier has a significant effect on whether a child will need braces in the future!" commented Dr. Marvin Lagstein.
As a pediatric dentist who offers orthodontic services, Dr. Marvin Lagstein has treated many children with braces. He knows that, while kids ultimately appreciate straighter teeth, improved self-confidence, and a better smile, the process can be painful and inconvenient. By being proactive and using the best baby products on the market, he believes that parents can avoid the need for braces.
But proper oral development can also affect adults. Not all parents can afford braces for their kids, and Dr. Marvin Lagstein has provided cosmetic orthodontics for many adults. Because they had to wait for braces, many of these patients suffered from low self-esteem and other negative side effects. He hopes that parents will recognize the importance of using proper pacifiers to avoid such issues.
Dr. Marvin Lagstein has over 39 years of experience as a pediatric dentist. After graduating from Brooklyn College and the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Marvin Lagstein dedicated his career to providing dental care to kids. Today, Dr. Marvin Lagstein also offers cosmetic orthodontics in the form of fast paced, invisible braces.
