Your child’s smile is vulnerable to many dental issues, especially tooth decay. Oftentimes, children develop cavities and then ignore them, which can result in severe pain and tooth extraction. So, to help you protect your little one’s chompers from this dental issue, our dental team encourages you to do the following things:

– A clean smile: Brush their teeth twice a day, floss once a day, and rinse with mouthwash daily. These techniques will properly clean their smile and will eliminate the harmful substances and bacteria that will create tooth decay and other dental problems.

-Use fluoride: Fluoride is the best mineral for a healthy smile. It nourishes and strengthens teeth and gives them the ability to fight tooth decay. So, take advantage of our professional fluoride treatment when you bring your child into our office. 

-Visit the dentist: Dental cleanings and exams are vital when it comes to fighting cavities. So, make sure to bring them in for cleanings every six months. These appointments will give our team the chance to deeply clean their smile, remove the plaque from the surfaces of teeth, and prevent major dental problems, like tooth decay and gum disease.

Doing these things will help you prevent cavities and other oral health issues for your little one. If they are due for a checkup or professional cleaning, please call Skyline Dental Associates at (613) 226-4562 as soon as possible and schedule an appointment with Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor. We also encourage you to call our office and talk to our friendly dental team if you have any questions about tooth decay prevention in Ottawa, Ontario, and the surrounding communities. We look forward to talking with you!
