Most parents know the basics of children’s dental health: brush regularly, reduce sugar intake, limit snacking, and get enough calcium and Vitamin D. At Pediatric Dental Center we recommend three additional tools for preventing cavities in youngsters:
- Fluoride supplements
- Oral rinses
Dental sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars, where they become an added layer of protection against decay. Of course, they are not a substitute for brushing!
Fluoride supplements help strengthen still-forming teeth.
Oral rinses with fluoride help strengthen teeth that have already come in. Make sure you choose one specifically formulated for children.
Don’t forget about regular cleanings and checkups! At Pediatric Dental Center we like to see our young patients every six months. Our services include pediatric dentistry and early dental care, and we have offices in Burlington, Newport, and Crestview Hills KY. Call us to schedule a checkup today!
