Choosing Your Child’s Dentist is an Important Decision
Teaching good habits early on (in an environment that’s relaxed and fun) is critical for laying the foundation that
promotes a lifetime of strong oral health. From a young age, children’s teeth are very susceptible to cavities due to
Children lack the necessary coordination to brush well on their own. Because of this, it is vital that parents assist
in their child’s daily dental care. This encourages both thorough cleaning and the development of proper dental habits.
Little kids tend to eat frequently throughout the day (grazing). This results in an extended exposure to food acids
(every time you eat you make acid), which may cause more cavities.
Lack of cleaning means teeth are more at risk for potential decay because of increased acid production that hastens the
development of cavities. The good news is that identifying poor dietary and hygiene habits, along with applying a fluoride
varnish to the mineralizing teeth, can drastically reduce the odds of your child developing a cavity.
