My child is prone to cavities. Can you help?

general dentistry | dental exam | gaithersburg mdPeople of all ages and walks of life get cavities. However, they are more common in children, which is why certain preventive measures should be taken to make your child’s teeth stronger and help protect him or her from cavities.

Our Gaithersburg, MD family dentist recommends twice-yearly dental exams and teeth cleanings. Dental exams help our dentist find areas your child may be missing with the toothbrush and floss. Also, teeth cleanings clear away stubborn bacteria that all toothbrushes leave behind. Our hygienist can give you tips to use at home that help your child reach brushing goals daily.

It’s also important to cut down or eliminate sugary snacks—including sodas and fruit juices—and replace these treats with unsweetened alternatives.

Sealants and fluoride rinses in our Gaithersburg, MD dental office help strengthen your child’s teeth and may lead to fewer cavities in the future.

Family dentistry in Gaithersburg, MD starts with prevention, and this goes a long way toward keeping teeth healthy for life.
