A Dentist is Part of Your Child's Health Care Needs
Children need to be guided during their daily dental care at home until they learn proper care of their teeth. Their teeth are very susceptible to cavities during their formative years for various reasons.
They usually do not brush well without supervision. If they do not clean their teeth properly each day, plaque will build up and start decay. Kids tend to eat throughout the day, which means increased exposure to acid during and after chewing food. As exposure to these acids continue, decay will set in. Even the smallest amount of decay is permanent damage to a tooth that will need a restoration.
If teeth are not cleaned properly, the rate of cavity development will increase, as well as the number of cavities. With improved dietary choices, better brushing and flossing, and mineralizing teeth, the risk of cavities can be lessened.
