Rising Number of Cavities in Children

Over the last few years, there has been an increase in the number of cavities found in children. This has resulted in both an increase in the number of teeth that need to be filled as well as the severity of the decay.
It’s important to protect your children from cavities, and we at Dr. Ian Gray would like to offer a few tips to help prevent the progress of tooth decay in young children:
  • Try to avoid putting your baby to bed with a bottle of milk or apple juice.
  • Always ensure that your children rinse with water after a sugary drink or snack.
  • Get your kids in the habit of brushing their teeth twice daily and flossing once.
  • Finally, make sure to schedule a visit to the dentist twice a year so that any issues are identified early and treated properly.
These simple and effective practices will help keep their teeth healthy and strong. Help your kids form good habits early, and their teeth will be far healthier as a result.
