Preventing Childhood Cavities: Is tooth decay common in children?
Sugar-laden diets have resulted in a rise of childhood tooth decay. Early development of tooth decay in children can compromise their oral health. Children who develop cavities during the beginning stages of their oral development tend to be more prone to gum disease and even tooth loss.
According to the CDC About 1 out of every 5 children aged 5 to 11 years have at least one untreated decayed tooth.
The best way to tackle tooth decay in children is through a proactive cavity prevention plan. Talk to Dr. Cheung about innovative ways to get your child engaged in routine brushing and flossing. We encourage parents to participate in their child’s daily oral health routine and to lead by example. A healthy diet high in fiber and low in sugar can help keep your child’s smile cavity free. Be sure to bring your child to the dentist at least once every six months for a routine dental exam.
Early diagnosis of tooth decay can help allow for conservative treatment options and to prevent the need tooth extractions. We offer cosmetic tooth-colored dental fillings that will blend seamlessly with the tooth and seal out future decay. Give us a call at (978) 218-2580, or request an appointment online today.
