Preventing Tooth Decay

At Smiles for Kids Pediatric Dentistry, one of our major goals is to help prevent tooth decay before it happens. That’s why Dr. Lindhorst and Dr. Jadav always emphasize good oral hygiene, a healthy diet, drinking lots of water, and coming in for your child’s regular dental check-ups every 6 months.

Here are five easy ways to prevent tooth decay:

1.       Use fluoridated toothpaste for 2 minutes 2 times every day

2.       Come in for the first dental visit by your child’s 1st birthday

3.       Don’t share utensils with your child

4.       Eat healthy

5.       Seal out decay

The American Dental Association has a fantastic website where you can find lots of useful information about toothpaste, teething, cavities and prevention.

Have a fantastic weekend!
