It's important to protect your child's teeth, not only from cavities, but from injuries as well. And there are several ways to do this, including:
A healthy diet is essential to protecting your child from tooth decay and creating a healthy mouth. This includes one serving each of meat, fish and eggs, fruits and vegetables, breads and cereals, and dairy products. It is also important to limit the servings of sugar and starches!
An effective way to protect the teeth is the fast and comfortable application of sealants. The crevasses on the surface of the teeth are filled, thus not allowing food particles to get caught in the teeth, causing cavities.
If your child has started sports, having a soft plastic mouth guard will protect their teeth, lips, cheeks and gums from injuries. Having a custom-fitted mouth guard, developed by your pediatric dentist, enables protection from injuries to the teeth, face and even severe injuries to the head.
Taking your child to the dentist regularly is just as important as brushing and flossing when it comes to making sure your child has healthy teeth. This can ensure a lifetime of healthy oral habits!
