School Going Children

School Going children can follow some simple rules for a great smile. These are:

 Good Home Care

1.  Parents should  supervise the child's brushing and flossing. One-third of parents allow their children to brush and floss unsupervised.

2.  The best time to brush is after breakfast and before bed.

3.  Encourage your child to floss at least once a day.

6.  Supervise your child's flossing until age 10.

7.  Snack in moderation. Cheese, vegetables and yogurt are all nutritious snacks.

 Fluorides

1.  Fluoride not only helps prevent tooth decay, but can also cure cavities in their early stages. A healed cavity is stronger than the original surface.

2. A pediatric dentist can advise parents about sources of fluoride supplements, fluoride treatments, fluoridated toothpaste and fluoride mouth rinses.  

3  A pea-size amount of toothpaste on the brush is plenty for fluoride protection. Children should spit out, not swallow, the toothpaste after brushing.

  Sealants

1.  Most cavities occur in places that sealants could have protected. Four out of five cavities in children under age 12 occur on the biting surfaces of the back teeth.

2.  Children with just a single application of sealants on their back teeth had 50% less tooth decay and tooth restoration after 15 years that children with sealants.

3.  The teeth most at risk of decay and therefore most in need of sealants are the six-year and twelve-year molars.

  Regular Dental Visits

1.  Teeth cleanings remove plaque build-up on the teeth. Plaque irritates the gums and causes decay.

2.  It is essential to get an on-going assessment of changes in a child's oral health by a pediatric dentist. For example, a child may need additional fluoride, dietary changes, sealants, or preventive orthodontics for ideal dental health.
