Children Oral Health


Tooth decay or better known as cavities affect more children in America than any other chronic disease. Untreated tooth decay in children is an epidemic in America today even though it is very preventable.

Untreated tooth decay causes pain and infections may lead to problems that affect such activities  as eating, speaking, playing, and learning.

A combination of dental sealants and fluoride treatments could virtually eliminate tooth decay in children.


  • Encourage your children to eat regular nutritious meals and avoid frequent between-meal snacking.
  • Protect your child's teeth with fluoride treatments.
  • Use a fluoride toothpaste. If your child is less than 7 years old, put only a pea-sized amount on their toothbrush.
  • If your drinking water is not fluoridated, talk to a dentist or physician about the best way to protect your child's teeth.
  • Invest in sealants. They protect your children's teeth from tooth decay.
  • If you are pregnant, get prenatal care and eat a healthy diet. The diet should include folic acid to prevent birth defects of the brain and spinal cord and possibly cleft lip/palate.

The most important factor in maintaining good oral health is seeing the dentist regularly and people who see the dentist regularly usually have a good dental insurance plan.
