Preventing Tooth Decay in Children

Cavity Prevention

Affordable dentists agree that there are few things more important than helping young children develop strong oral hygiene habits and practices to help build the foundation for lifelong enjoyment of healthy teeth. Studies have shown that the children tooth decay affects stand a far greater chance of having cavities through adulthood, so it makes good sense for parents to get an early start with cavity prevention when taking care of their children’s teeth.

The way to assess whether your children face low, moderate, or elevated risk of tooth decay is with an initial dental examination. The children tooth decay affects can benefit greatly from a vigilant oral hygiene regimen formulated with the help of a dental professional. A dentist in Frederick will be able to instruct you on how to assist your kids with daily brushing and flossing routines and can provide useful cavity prevention pointers.

Children need to begin brushing as soon as the very first tooth appears, and it is important to actively help kids brush their teeth at least until they are old enough to tie their own shoes. This is typically around ages five or six. Because tooth decay is known to have a genetic component, take extra care of your children’s teeth if your family has a history of dental problems.

Make sure to also teach healthy dental care habits at the kitchen table as well as at the bathroom sink by limiting starchy snack foods and sugary beverages and by encouraging kids to rinse their mouths after eating. Ultimately, all children are at some degree of risk for developing tooth decay, but by following a few key cavity prevention tips, the potential for decay and gingivitis in the youngest patients can be substantially lowered.
