Did you know that tooth decay affects children in the United States more than any other chronic infectious disease? Untreated tooth decay causes pain and infection which can lead to Â many other everyday problems for kids including speaking and learning deficiencies.
The good news is that tooth decay and other oral diseases that can affect children are preventable. The combination of dental sealants and fluoride has the potential to nearly eliminate tooth decay in school-age children. Â However, if your children are younger than 7, you should only give them a pea sized amount of toothpaste with fluoride on their tooth brush as too much fluoride can be toxic for a child’s health. Dental sealants is always another way to help protect children’s teeth from decay.Â Lastly, regular dental checkups and cleanings are a must for a child’s dental hygiene.
