Most kids are afraid of the dentist even if dental practices such as ours have caring dentistry for kids. Helping your child get over dental phobia is important, and you can reduce unfavorable visits to our dentist in Studio City by preventing the leading cause of tooth aches in children—tooth decay.
Tooth decay happens when bacteria from food particles left in the teeth begin eating away at a tooth’s enamel. Because children generally have a poor record when it comes to oral hygiene and are likely to enjoy sweets and foods rich in carbohydrates, they are at higher risk of tooth decay. Fortunately for children and parents alike, this is one dental problem that is treatable and preventable.
Here are a few ways to prevent tooth decay:
Of course, prevention care doesn’t guarantee your child will never experience tooth decay. A visit to our Studio City dentist can provide a kind of prevention no amount of regular brushing and flossing can carry out. Request an appointment with us and we’ll provide your kid with the same gentleness our patients have come to expect from Studio City Dental Arts.
