Family Dentistry

Instilling Good Dental Care at an Early Age

It is important for parents and children to realize that children's teeth are more prone to cavities than adults' teeth. One of the reasons is that kids often do not brush thoroughly on their own. They may need parental supervision until they learn to do a good job. 

Also, children eat throughout the day. Eating produces acid in the mouth that affects the teeth and leads to decay if hygiene is not up to snuff. Continual exposure to the acid stimulated by food and drink will speed up the rate that cavities develop. And if teeth are routinely less clean than they should be, more cavities will develop. 

With healthier food choices, better daily hygiene, and fluoride treatment, the occurrence of cavities can be reduced significantly.
