Tuesday Tip – Diet is One of the Main Risk Factors for Cavities

Important Tuesday Tip: Diet is one of the main risk factors for cavities, so we recommend the following nutritional advice:

Help your child develop good eating habits.

Limit snacking between meals and have a 5-10 minute time limit.

Save sugary sweet treats for mealtime when the mouth creates more saliva to help rinse away food particles.
