The Importance of Prevention:
Preventing cavities, even in primary teeth, is smart parenting. Teaching your child to brush and floss daily, and assisting until your child can do this on his own, will remove plaque and prevent decay. Fostering a healthy diet that’s low in sugar and refined carbohydrates contributes to both a healthy body and healthy teeth and gums. Scheduling regular appointments for your child with Dr. Dikansky allows her to completely examine your child’s teeth and gums often enough to minimize the need for more serious dental treatments, assuming she can catch problems early on.
