Preventing Cavities in Young Children’s Teeth
Proper oral hygiene helps remove bacteria and food particles that lead to the development of cavities. To help prevent cavities in infant children, use a wet gauze or clean washcloth to wipe the plaque from teeth and gums. Avoid putting your child to bed with a bottle filled with anything other than water (this can lead to “Baby Bottle Tooth Decay”).
We recommend that you schedule check-ups with Dr. Mitchell every six months once your child turns one year old. This will ensure that they have a healthy start to satisfactory check-ups through their entire childhood and beyond!
