Choosing Your Child’s Dentist is as Important as Choosing Their Pediatrician
We emphasize the importance of instilling good dental
hygiene habits at an early age. Children are more prone to
cavities, as they do not always brush well. We encourage
parents to be a part of their children’s daily dental care
for better cleaning and consistent daily care.
As children eat more often throughout the day, this extends
the exposure of acid to their teeth. Every time you eat,
acid is produced in the breakdown of food. As acid builds up
and bacteria form, cavities will result. If a tooth is not
clean to begin with, additional acid from contact with food
and drink will increase the rate of cavity development.
With a healthy diet, improved hygiene habits, and an
application of fluoride varnish that will mineralize teeth,
the chances of decay can be lessened.
