Your Child’s Dentist with Care
You probably spent a great deal of time choosing your child’s
pediatrician. Who you choose to care for their oral health is
just as important. A good dentist for children knows how
important it is to instill good habits early, in an environment
that’s comfortable and fun, to set up a lifetime of good oral
There are many reasons that children’s teeth can be prone to
cavities, even at a very young age. Kids can’t brush well on
their own, so parents must be involved in their child’s daily
dental care. This ensures both thorough cleaning and the
development of proper dental habits. Little kids also tend to
graze, or eat more often during the day. Every time you eat you
make acid, so children’s teeth have more exposure to that acid,
which may cause more cavities.
A tooth that isn’t completely clean will also be exposed to acid
when food and juice contact it. This acid can be responsible for
speeding up the development of cavities. The good news is that
identifying poor dietary and hygiene habits, along with applying
a fluoride varnish to the mineralizing teeth, can significantly
reduce the risk of cavities.
