Cavity Prevention

cavityIn most cases, cavities are due to a diet high in sugary foods and a lack of brushing. Thus, limiting sugar intake and brushing regularly can help prevent tooth decay. It’s also important to receive a professional cleaning twice a year.

Tips for cavity prevention:

  • Limit the frequency of meals and snacks.
  • Encourage brushing, flossing and rinsing.
  • Watch what your child drinks.
  • Avoid sticky foods.
  • Make treats a part of meals.
  • Choose nutritious snacks.
  • See your pediatric dentist every 6 months.
