Why is cavity prevention so important at such a young age?
Most cavities, at any age, are caused by high sugary and acidic foods and drinks and lack of proper brushing. For children, it’s common to be less concerned about baby teeth, but they are crucial to their developing adult teeth, chewing without discomfort, and speech!
Brushing at least every morning after breakfast and every evening before bed with a tiny amount of fluoridated toothpaste. This routine should start as soon as the first tooth appears and continue throughout their life. The amount of fluoridated toothpaste to be used varies with age and we would be happy to give you our scientific guidelines and advice at every appointment.
