Your Choice of Dentist is Important for Your Child’s Good Health
We instill in children the importance of good dental habits at each visit, because children’s teeth are prone to dental caries (cavities) for various reasons. Children often do not do a thorough job of brushing their teeth. We advise parents to oversee their children’s brushing and flossing to ensure they do a good job. Young kids tend to eat throughout the day (grazing). This results in more acid production (eating produces acids in the mouth) and can lead to more cavities.
Teeth that are not clean to begin with will also contribute to acid production, which can increase the risk of cavities. Healthy food choices and excellent daily cleaning routines reduce this risk. We also recommend one application of a mineralizing fluoride varnish to protect the teeth from decay.
