5 Ways to Protect Children’s Teeth

  1. Use fluoride: If your child is over age 2, make sure their toothpaste contains fluoride. Also, check to see if your tap water has fluoride in it. If not, talk to your dentist about fluoride supplements.
  2. Dental sealants: Talk to your child’s dentist about dental sealant. This is a thin plastic coating applied to the surface of the teeth, which acts as a barrier to help prevent cavities.
  3. Follow the “2×2” rule: Make sure your child is brushing their teeth for a full two minutes twice a day. It may help to make a brushing chart and use a timer.
  4. Eat right: Explain to your child how sugary and acidic foods can cause cavities and weaken tooth enamel. Educating children about how foods impact their health will give them the knowledge they need to make better food choices.
  5. Visit the dentist: Your child should have their first dentist visit by their first birthday. After that, they should continue to see the dentist at least once every year.
