Preventing Cavities

A comprehensive cavity prevention program includes promoting healthy eating, daily brushing and flossing, proper use of fluoride toothpaste, and routine dental check ups. Keeping cavities at bay is a team effort between dentist, parent, and the child. Not all kids’ have the same cavity risk, so it’s important to consult with your child’s dentist about the right preventative measures. Our office typically recommends professional fluoride varnish application and sealant based on each child’s individual needs and cavity risk.
