Just because baby teeth will fall out and be carried off by the tooth fairy one day doesn’t mean they should be treated like “temporary teeth”.  Dental disease is the single most common childhood illness and a 2007 report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that cavities among youngsters are on the rise.  Twenty-eight percent of children have cavities in their baby teeth.  Even though baby teeth are eventually lost, problems with baby teeth can affect function, speech, growth and development and esthetic considerations in the future.  Also, contrary to popular belief decayed baby teeth are painful to the child.  They have roots and nerves just like adult teeth.  Some children may not complain of pain because the onset of discomfort is so early and gradual the child may not express the symptoms of decay as you or I would.

Brushing at least twice a day.
Help your child brush their teeth, make it fun or a game. Brush your teeth together. Talk to them about your teeth, do you have cavities? Tell them about your experience. Never put a child to sleep without brushing after drinking juice, soda, milk or breast milk. All of these contain sugar! Make teeth brushing apart of your bedtime routine.

Read labels avoid sugar snacks and juices.
Watering down juices can decrease the amount of sugar in each cup. Avoid stick gooey candy that sticks to the teeth, like fruit roll-up, gummy bears, Jolly Ranchers, and fruit snack

Visit us every 6 months.
Teeth cleaning regularly by our trained staffed can help fight cavities. Plus catching a problem earlier is always easier and less expensive to correct.
