3 Cavity Fighters For Decatur Kids

South Cullman Pediatric and Cosmetic Dentistry

Most parents know the basics of children’s dental health: brush regularly, reduce sugar intake, limit snacking, and get enough calcium and Vitamin D. At Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL, we recommend three additional tools for preventing cavities in youngsters:

  • Sealants: Dental sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars, where they become an added layer of protection against decay. Of course, they are not a substitute for brushing!
  • Fluoride supplements: Fluoride supplements help strengthen still-forming teeth.
  • Oral rinses: Oral rinses with fluoride help strengthen teeth that have already come in. Make sure you choose one specifically formulated for children.

Don’t forget about regular cleanings and checkups! At Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL, we like to see our young patients every six months. Our services include general and restorative dentistry. Parents from North Athens, East Mooresville, and South Cullman trust us with their children’s dental health. Contact us today!
