At St. George Kids Dental, there are a few things we can do to ensure your child’s teeth will stay as strong as possible, even if they’ve had a scrap with baby bottle tooth decay.
As with most dental services, the care treatments will vary depending on the age of your child. Dr. Trent Pryor will work together with you to create the perfect service plan for your little one. One of the first steps they may go over is to diminish the percentage of sugary sweets currently in your child’s day-to-day eating; sugary foods are the playground of cavity-making bacteria that wear away at teeth. The dentist may also endorse giving your child an enamel-reinforcing fluoride treatment and/or prescribe fluoride pills to boost your child’s first line of defense against cavities. Finally, the dentist will suggest helping your child brush their teeth two times a day and floss their teeth once per day.
