SOME TIPS FOR CHILDREN AND PARENTS:
Brush your teeth twice a day. An adult should help you at least one of those times.
Floss every day, even baby teeth
Never put a baby to bed with a bottle of any liquid other than water. Milk and juices in the bed time bottle can cause severe dental decay.
Fluoride makes teeth harder and less likely to decay. Fluoride supplements may be necessary for children in areas where the tap water is not fluoridated or the children don't drink enough water.
Sealants prevent decay and permanent teeth should be sealed as soon as possible after they erupt. Sealants are simply bonded into the deep grooves of the molars.
An orthodontic consultation will be advised at the appropriate time.
