Pediatric Dentist Frisco TX https://www.dentistoffrisco.com/childrens-dentistry/ How can you prevent cavities and tooth decay in children? The best way is to start good oral habits as early as possible. This begins even before your child’s first tooth comes in; by wiping your baby’s gums gently with a clean baby washcloth, you are forming that habit. After their teeth start coming in, make sure kids brush their teeth twice a day for at least two minutes and flossing after. This might be a constant battle for some children, but there are ways to make it fun, like buying their favorite character toothbrush or fun sparkly toothpaste. A great way to encourage children to brush daily is by brushing with them, make it a family thing every morning and night.
It is also crucial is to prevent prolonged contact with sugars in drinks and food. Bacteria in the mouth love to feed on sugars that are left behind after eating or drinking, and this bacteria produces acid that damages the surface of teeth, which over time leads to decay. So introduce good feeding habits early in life to help prevent tooth decay. If you have any questions about tooth decay in children or would like to schedule a consultation for your little one, please give us a call; we would love to get to know you and your family and get you on the path to a healthy, beautiful smile.
