To help ensure oral health and a lifetime of good oral care habits:
- Limit children’s sugar intake
- Make sure children get enough fluoride, either through drinking water or supplement to diet
- Teach children how to brush
- Supervise brushing sessions, which can be a challenge for small hands
Fluoride treatments to strengthen tooth enamel and resist decay. This may include fluoride supplements in areas where drinking water is not optimally fluoridated. Be sure to ask your dentist about supplements to determine if they are needed.
Dental sealants to provide a further layer of protection against cavities. Sealants are made of plastic and are bonded to the teeth by the dental team.
A fun oral care regimen to help encourage children to brush more regularly. Kid’s Crest® Cavity Protection is a fluoride toothpaste with Sparkle Fun flavour just for kids.
