Good Habits Can Produce a Lifetime of Healthy TeethIntroducing good habits early, in an atmosphere that’s comfortable and fun, is a fundamental building block for producing a lifetime of good oral health. Children’s teeth can be extremely susceptible to cavities even at a very young age for many reasons:
Children struggle to brush well on their own. Because of this, it is essential for parents to assist in their child’s daily dental care. This allows for thorough cleaning and encourages the development of proper dental habits.
Little kids like to eat all day long. This habit produces a prolonged exposure to acid (every time you eat you make acid), which may bring about more cavities. A dirty tooth causes the generation of more acid, which increases enamel vulnerability.
The good news is that recognizing poor dietary and hygiene routines, along with applying fluoride to the mineralizing teeth, can considerably reduce the risk of your child developing a cavity.
