Keeping Children Cavity-Free

Cavity Prevention

Dentists agree that teaching smart oral hygiene habits to young children is the best way to help them enjoy a lifetime of strong teeth and healthy gums. Research has shown that children who develop cavities in baby teeth are much more likely to face cavities as adults. It is wise for all parents to take the time to learn whether or not their children are abnormally predisposed to tooth decay, and a dental examination is a perfect way to assess whether your child faces low, moderate, or elevated risk of cavities.

The children tooth decay affects will benefit greatly from a vigilant oral hygiene regimen formulated with the help of a dentist in Thorndale. Affordable dentists can instruct parents on how to assist their kids with daily brushing and flossing routines and can provide useful cavity prevention pointers. 



Children should begin brushing as soon as their very first tooth appears. It is important to actively help kids brush their teeth at least until they are old enough to tie their own shoes, which is typically around the ages of five or six. Because tooth decay is known to have a genetic component, take extra care of your children’s teeth if your family has a history of dental problems. 

Also, be sure to foster healthy dental habits in the kitchen as well as at the bathroom sink by limiting starchy snack foods and sugary beverages and by encouraging kids to rinse their mouths after eating.

Ultimately, all children are at some degree of risk for developing tooth decay, but by following a few key cavity prevention tips, the potential for decay and gingivitis in the youngest patients can be substantially lowered.
