The best way to avoid tooth decay is to ensure that your child brushes his or her teeth daily. Once in the morning, and once at night before bedtime. Proper dental hygiene and regular visits to the dentist is the best way to keep your kids' teeth cavity free.

Here are some important tips to prevent Cavities in your children:

  1. Control your kids' frequency of snacks and meals.
  2. Promote your children's brushing, flossing and rinsing consistently.
  3. Try to avoid sticky foods for your kids.

For total care of your children's teeth visit Dr. Monica in Tarzana, CA. Dr. Monica will make sure to provide you and your family with excellent service and care.

Sealants:

Dr. Monica suggests sealants to protect kids tooth surfaces. Sealants are made of resin and help to prevent cavities on your kids' teeth. Sealants reduce the risk of cavities by creating protection against food and plaque.

Gum Disease Examinations:

Many people believe periodontal disease is an adult problem, but studies indicate it is nearly a universal problem among children. It can cause gum tissue to swell, turn red and bleed easily.

Localized aggressive periodontitis can affect young healthy children. It mainly affects the first molars and incisors. It is characterized by the severe loss of alveolar bone, and ironically, patients generally form very little dental plaque or calculus.

Early diagnosis is important for successful treatment of periodontal diseases. Moreover, it is important that children receive a periodontal examination as part of their routine dental visits.
