Healthy Cavity Prevention Tips for Children

Cavity Prevention

Affordable dentists everywhere agree that helping young children establish solid oral hygiene habits early on in life can pave the way to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Studies suggest that kids who get cavities in their baby teeth have a much greater likelihood of having cavities once they reach adulthood. Therefore, it pays for parents to take steps to determine if their children are at serious risk of developing tooth decay.

An initial dental examination is a perfect way to assess whether your child faces low, moderate, or elevated risk of cavities. 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 Orlando 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.

Brushing needs to begin 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.

In addition, make certain to foster healthy dental habits in the kitchen 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.
