Simple Steps to Effective Cavity Prevention

dca-blog_cavity-prevention-lollipop

One of the most valuable gifts parents can give their children is the gift of good dental care habits. Though it is certainly true that coaxing kids to brush and floss properly on a twice-daily basis can sometimes be tough, the end result makes it all worthwhile. By instilling the importance of good dental care practices early on, parents can give their children a much better chance at preventing tooth decay.

Thorough brushing and flossing must be an integral part of every child’s daily dental care regimen in order to eliminate the bacteria that contribute to plaque buildup. When plaque sits on the teeth, bacteria begin to eat away at protective tooth enamel and cavities are likely to result. As soon as a baby’s first tooth emerges, daily tooth cleaning must begin. Flossing plays an equally important role, as it helps remove food particles and debris that toothbrushes may not be able to reach. An affordable dentist in Bradenton can help parents determine an appropriate dental care plan at each stage of a child’s development.

The benefits of fluoride for maintaining good dental health must not be underestimated. Parents should research whether or not they live in a city with a fluoridated water supply. If they do not, it is wise to consult with an affordable dentist to find effective, safe ways to introduce fluoride supplementation as a means to prevent cavities.

Parents who are committed to providing their children with the best possible dental care program should also investigate dental sealants as a way to stave off tooth decay. A sealant is basically a thin coating of material that is applied directly to the back molars. It creates a barrier that prevents intrusion of bacteria and food debris into the tiny grooves and ridges in those teeth. Sealants can be an effective cavity prevention tool.

By taking small children to see the dentist as soon as their first teeth begin to appear, parents can ensure that sound dental care habits and practices become a way of life for the entire family. The positive impact of that decision will undoubtedly be felt for years to come.
