How To Help Your Child Avoid Cavities

It is important for parents to help their children establish health oral health habits. This can help young patients avoid cavities or reduce their risk of complex dental problems in the future.

In addition, Dr. Leah Butler and our team, work with patients of all ages to improve the health function, and appearance of their smile. We encourage young patients to visit our office for routine visits. During these visit we can gently clean your child’s teeth and check for any early warning signs of tooth decay. We can also teach your child the best ways to care for their smile.

Brush and Floss Everyday

No matter the age, it is important for all patients to brush and floss their teeth regularly. Most dentists recommend brushing your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time. Flossing should be done at least once a day to remove food and bacteria from between the teeth.

Visit The Dentist Regularly

Regular visits to the dentist allows your child’s dentist to check your child’s teeth for any signs of dysfunction. During their visit, your child’s dentist can recommend any treatment they need as well as teach your child the best ways to care for the smile and discuss any oral hygiene tips.

During these visits, your child may also receive a professional dental cleaning, which can help remove plaque build up from your child’s teeth. When left untreated plaque can lead to gum disease and decay.

Eat A Healthy Diet

Eating a healthy diet can help boost your child’s dental health. Too much sugary foods and soft drinks can lead to bacteria and plaque build up on your child’s teeth. Instead of incorporating sugary foods and beverages, try introducing a healthy diet of vegetable, fruits, and grains.
