Preventing Cavities | Dentist 92675

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.

Infants (Children Under Two Years of Age):

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.

Children Over Two Years Old

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.

Dental Check-Ups

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.

Dental Sealants

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.


★★★★★ In my opinion, Teddy Bear Dental is one of the best Dentist Practices in San Juan Capistrano. Dr. Teddy Kim and his staff are the best. They treat you like family and have a genuine interest in your wellbeing. I used to hate going to the dentist because of feeling like I was just another patient. All of which, went away when I scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Kim.

★★★★★ I came to Teddy Bear Dental fleeing from my previous dentist, and it was the best decision. Dr. Kim was very professional and caring and listened to my concerns that were not taken into account at my previous doctor. The office was very clean and orderly and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and you can tell they take not only dental hygiene seriously but cleanliness in general as a big priority.
