Cavity Prevention in Kids

July 1, 2016 ADManage

With good dental care near Park Ridge, your kids can go into adolescence and receive orthodontic care with few to no cavities. With a handful of simple tips, you can give your kids a cavity-free childhood, and they can enjoy growing up even more.

As you watch this short cartoon video, take note that cavities can be painful and distracting. By teaching your kids about cavity prevention, they can prevent future gum disease. Try to limit the amount of sweets your kids eat throughout the day, and make sure they drink water over sugary drinks and sodas. When brushing their teeth, give them a pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste. Fluoride will help protect and strengthen their teeth. This extra strength can also help protect their teeth in case they ever need dental braces. They will continue to have healthy oral hygiene throughout childhood and into adulthood.
