Decay Prevention

As a parent, there are few things more alarming than the first signs of tooth decay in your child. It often comes as a bit of a surprise when the first few baby teeth begin showing signs of decay, and parents are bound to feel a little bit of guilt as well. Decay prevention can help both the child and parent avoid problems in the future.

The good news is that such occurrences can be prevented with a combination of good habits at home and professional dental care provided by a children’s dentist. By instilling good dental care practices at home and taking your children in for regular consultation with a dentist, you may be able to protect your child from tooth decay and other dental problems.

What can you do at home for decay prevention? Brushing and flossing are absolutely necessary of course, as they will remove any food debris stuck in between the teeth. These routines can also remove plaque and film buildup that is so often the cause of dental problems.

Infants and young children should be supervised when brushing and flossing until they are able to do so on their own. Brushing and flossing regularly is a great way to prevent decay. In addition to home dental care, periodic visits to a dentist are also important. To find out more about proper dental care for your children, call Great Grins Children’s Dentistry at (520) 325-4746 today.
