By using easy daily routines in your oral hygiene, you can prevent cavities. Adjusting your child’s oral hygiene is needed as they grow older.
Prevent any plaque build up on your infant’s teeth and gums by cleaning them with a washcloth or a gauze pad. Making sure your child’s bottle when putting them into bed with it, only contains water to prevent decay.
Make sure your child brushes their teeth twice daily (typically once in the morning and again before bed). Also, try to limit the amount of sugary drinks and food they consume.
After your child is one year old, the AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry) suggests going to the pediatric dentist in 6 month intervals. These will build great dental habits for your child that can last a lifetime.
We recommend getting dental sealants which are composed of a clear material that is applied typically on your child’s chewing surface for their molars to resist decay where food is chewed. You may be suggested to give your child fluoride as well as an extra layer of protection.
