CAVITY FREE KIDS

July 10, 2019

All the sweet-toothed kids’ moms are too sweet to deny the sugar on demand. We agree that a mother’s love nourishes a child but you too need to comply with the harm the sweets may be causing to your child. Not to scare you, but children are at a higher risk of the cavity due to relatively more intake of sugars & sweets, chocolates, and cookies. Yes, the excess of it all is harmful to the entire body and not just the teeth, however, any food remained in the mouth for a long time can also give rise to the bacteria building cavity.

Other than sugars and sweets, several daily eating habits and lifestyle may be putting the little kids at risk; -

  • High level of bacteria causing cavity
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Soda intake

All the kids out there can prevent cavity, here’s how;

  • Brushing teeth using fluoride toothpaste after every meal reduces the plaque.
  • Brush at least twice a day and brush before bedtime and don’t eat anything afterward
  • Brush the right way; upwards and downwards in circular motions. Softly brush your gums as well as tongue to keep them clean and healthy.
  • Avoid sodas and sugary drinks. Limit sweets.
  • Meet your dentist twice a year to maintain oral health and ensure no signs of a cavity.
  • Also, change your toothbrush every 3 months for better cleaning and hygiene.
  • Although cavities can be repaired and filled giving you back the functionality and strength (90%) of the natural teeth, prevention is better than the cure.
