How Pediatric Dentists in Chandler Prevent Cavities

How Pediatric Dentists in Chandler Prevent Cavities
Pediatric Dentists in Chandler


Good oral hygiene is essential when trying to prevent cavities from forming in your child. Encouraging your child to brush his teeth at least twice per day helps to remove bacteria from the mouth and, therefore, reduces the chance of tooth decay. Pediatric dentists in Chandler can give you some excellent tips to prevent tooth decay from forming in the future.

 

Dietary Recommendations
The first thing that pediatric dentists in Chandler can do is provide you with dietary recommendations for your child. While it is impossible to eliminate sugar from your child’s diet entirely, you can cut it back. Don’t give your child sugar snacks and try to reduce the number of sweet drinks that you give her as well. It’s also a good idea to avoid giving your child anything sweet at night.

 

Start Early
Another thing that your dentist might recommend is to start cleaning the child’s teeth early in life. As soon as the child’s first teeth arrive, you can begin cleaning them with a washcloth. Also, avoid giving the child a bottle with anything but water, as even milk contains sugar that can lead to tooth decay.

 

Dentist Appointments
Of course, you should get your child to see the dentist every six months to avoid potential problems. The dentist will give your child’s teeth a thorough cleaning and fill any cavities that have formed. Give Kids First Pediatric Dentistry a call at (480) 802-2200 to schedule an appointment and put your child on the right track at a young age.
