You can control your own dental care with such great ease that you know whether you’re headed toward tooth decay or if you’re doing everything that you can to prevent it. However, when you’re trying to manage every last detail of your child’s dental care, it can start to feel somewhat overwhelming. You don’t want your kids to develop cavities but you cannot be there every single second at every birthday party, during school, and more, to make sure your child is on track 24/7. Not to worry. We can help you with the best approach possible.
Always Choose Sealants
Place dental sealants on children’s teeth. They offer exceptional protection against tooth decay and you don’t have to think about them once the process is complete!
Stick With Fluoride Toothpaste
Preventing tooth decay in your kids’ smiles means you should be using toothpaste with fluoride. This is true for Mom and Dad, too. Don’t use toothpaste without this essential mineral, as it is very helpful in cavity prevention.
Limit Sugar At Home
Your kids are probably going to eat sweets whenever they have the chance. However, it’s easy to limit their intake when you do your best to keep it out of your home! Offer up sweet treats only on special occasions or as rewards, so little ones aren’t exposed to too much daily sugar.
Send Healthy Lunches To School
Good, your children have dental sealants in place, so you don’t have to worry too much about their smiles when they are at school. However, to further do your best to make tooth decay less likely for your children, we encourage you to send healthy foods and snacks, to limit sugars, and to limit acidic drinks (like juice). Instead, choose whole foods, protein, fruits, veggies, dairy, water, and milk!
