Instilling Good Dental Habits in Your Children
We teach the importance of proper brushing, flossing, and dietary choices for excellent oral health, and encourage children to focus on their habits each and every day.
Children’s teeth are prone to cavities for various reasons. Acid is produced in the mouth every time food is present. Because children tend to eat frequently throughout the day, that causes frequent acid production. If teeth are not cleaned properly, continual exposure to acid will increase the risk of cavities. Effective brushing can help. As children do not brush well and need supervision, parents should oversee how their children clean their teeth to ensure they do a good job.
A dental sealant is a treatment that helps to protect teeth against cavities. It mineralizes the teeth and is a simple and easy procedure that takes just minutes. There is no pain and no shots are necessary, and it has proven to significantly reduce cavities. A healthy selection of foods and improved hygiene also lessen the risk of cavities.
