Do you want your child to have a strong and healthy smile? If so, you need to help them prevent cavities. Cavities are very dangerous and destructive for the smile, and it’s important to keep them at bay. Fortunately, there are many things to help your child prevent cavities and maintain a top-notch smile. Our dentists, Dr. Rita Daghlian and Dr. Paul Sokolowski, are happy to tell you all about those cavity prevention tips, which are:
-Help them brush and floss: Brushing twice a day and flossing once a day can remove the plaque and bacteria from the teeth and gums regularly, which can help them prevent cavities. So, make sure to help your child keep up with oral hygiene.
-Bring them in for checkups: Dental checkups are very important when keeping cavities at bay. This is because our professional cleaning will remove the cavity-causing substances from the teeth and gums and help your child have the top-notch smile they need. So, make sure to bring your child in for their checkups every six months, starting around their first birthday.
-Don’t send them to bed with a bottle: When you send them to bed with a bottle of milk or a bottle of sugary or high-carbohydrate liquids, it promotes baby bottle tooth decay. It’s best to avoid this problem as much as possible. If you must send your child to bed with a bottle, fill the bottle with water.
