Tips for Helping Kids Stay Cavity Free

Cavity Prevention

Ensuring that their children grow up with an appreciation of the importance of good oral hygiene is one of the most valuable things a parent can do. Teaching little ones to brush, floss, and maintain proper dental care practices from their earliest years on is something that can pay dividends for decades to come. Giving kids the tools they need to avoid expensive, painful dental problems as they grow older is an objective all parents should strive to meet.

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 essential tooth enamel and cavities are likely to result. As soon as a child’s first tooth emerges, daily teeth cleaning must begin. Flossing plays an equally important role, as it helps remove food particles and debris that a toothbrush may not be able to reach. An affordable dentist can help parents determine an appropriate dental care plan at each stage of a child’s development.

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

Parents who are committed to providing their children with the best possible dental care program should also investigate dental sealants, which can be an effective cavity-prevention tool. A sealant is basically a thin coating of material that is applied directly to the child’s back molars. It is intended to create a barrier that prevents intrusion of bacteria and food debris into the tiny grooves and ridges in those teeth.

By taking small children to see the dentist as soon as their first teeth 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 be felt for a lifetime.
