Shield Teeth From Cavities

One of the biggest concerns when we see a patient of any age for their routine hygiene examination is whether there is tooth decay and a filling or other treatment will be needed. This is especially a concern for our young patients, and we understand. Parents can get frustrated because it can be difficult for children to brush their teeth properly, especially when it comes to the small crevices in the back molars. Without proper brushing, decay can begin to develop. We offer a treatment that can be beneficial for all of our patients, young and old, who are concerned about tooth decay.

How To Prevent Tooth Decay In Children

Are you a parent to a young child, or do you have a young child in your life? If so, you know that children can have a mind of their own at times. It can be particularly challenging for parents to get their children to brush their teeth. Then, after hounding them endlessly for them to brush their teeth, you find out they didn’t do it. It can be a vicious cycle, day after day. We know parents want their children to learn proper oral hygiene to create lasting habits and help avoid tooth decay, one of the most common chronic conditions in children. We want to share some helpful ways you can help prevent the child in your life from developing tooth decay.
