How can I protect my child from cavities?

Young girl smiling Did you know that cavities and tooth decay are the most common chronic medical conditions that children deal with? Tooth decay can cause discomfort, difficulties eating and chewing, and time away from school.

Fortunately, there are many ways parents can be proactive about preventing tooth decay. Monitoring your son or daughter's nutrition is essential. Not only limiting their consumption of sugar but also incorporating more fruits and vegetables into their diet is beneficial for their dental health. This is because fruits and veggies increase saliva flow and neutralize the acids in your mouth that cause tooth decay.

Fight Against Cavities

Instilling the skills and habits of a consistent tooth brushing and flossing routine will ensure that your child is removing the plaque buildup that causes cavities. Be sure to monitor and assist with their brushing to ensure they are thorough.

Routine visits to your Barrie children's dentist every six months will also protect your child from tooth decay. Your children's dentist can detect cavities early enough to be treated with a simple filling, saving your child the discomfort of enduring more complicated treatment procedures.
