Dr. Filangeri understands this. Instilling good habits early, in an environment that’s comfortable and fun, is essential for a lifetime of good oral health.
Children are not able to brush well on their own. Because of this, it is important for parents to be involved in their child’s daily dental care.
This ensures thorough cleaning as well as the development of proper
Little kids tend to eat more often during the day (grazing). This results in a prolonged exposure to acid (every time you eat you make acid), which may cause more cavities.
A tooth that is not as clean as it should be will be exposed to acid when food and juice contact it. This acid often speeds 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 chance of your child having a cavity. Sealants may be recommended!
