Children's Dental Care

Your Child's Dentist Is Important to Maintain Good Health

Children's teeth are susceptible to cavities during their formative years due to various factors. Often they do not brush as well as needed, missing back areas or the grooves in some teeth. We recommend parents be a part of their daily brushing and flossing until they learn to do the best job possible.

As children tend to eat small amounts frequently throughout the day (sometimes known as "grazing," they excessively expose their teeth to acid that is produced whenever food is chewed. Continual acid contact increases the risk of cavities developing. When teeth are not as clean as they should be, this encourages additional acid production, which in turn advances the rate that cavities develop and grow.

Improved daily dental hygiene, better and more nutritious food choices, and an application of a mineralizing varnish will significantly reduce the risk of cavity development in your children's permanent teeth.
