More Ways To Fight Kids’ Tooth Decay

prevent childhood tooth decay Lafayette

Most parents make sure their child brushes their teeth. They do their best to limit candy and sugary drinks, and make sure there’s plenty of calcium and Vitamin D in their diets. But despite parents’ best efforts, we still treat a lot of tooth decay in kids at Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO.

Parents should be aware that there are four additional weapons for preventing cavities.

  • Sealants
  • Fluoride Supplements
  • Oral Rinses
  • Professional dental cleanings

Dental sealants bond to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, protecting them from decay. .

Fluoride supplements help strengthen still-forming teeth before they erupt.

Oral rinses work best when young kids and teenagers swish after they brush and floss at night. The rinse should be the last thing to make contact with teeth before bed.

Dental cleanings remove what can’t be brushed away. Kids who receive twice-a-year teeth cleanings are less likely to experience tooth decay, infection, or gum disease.
