Proper Dental Habits for Children

Instilling Good Habits for Healthy Teeth

We teach children proper dental habits in an environment that is fun and comfortable for them. We tell both children and parents that a child's teeth are more prone to cavities and explain the various reasons.

Often children do not brush their teeth as well as needed. We encourage parents to supervise their children's brushing and flossing until they have the ability to be thorough. 

Kids also eat small meals more often throughout the day. Every time food is chewed, acid is produced. Extensive exposure to this acid will increase the chances of cavities. If a tooth is not clean to begin with, the resulting production of even more acid will increase the rate that cavities develop. 

Improved dental hygiene and healthier dietary choices will lessen the development of cavities. We also highly recommend the application of a protective dental sealant to prevent the cavities in back teeth.
