Below are some recommended methods of cavity prevention for children that can be implemented at home:

  • Teach children to brush their teeth twice a day, morning and night, with a soft toothbrush. Hard bristles may be too tough on the gums for young kids.

  • Regular fluoride use strengthens the enamel and makes it more difficult for acid to penetrate. Some cities may have fluoridated tap water, while others don’t. Use fluoridated toothpaste on a regular basis or ask your dentist if fluoride supplements are right for you.

  • Limit or avoid foods that cause cavities and erode enamel, such as sugary snacks, candy, and juices. If they do eat these foods, children should brush or rinse their mouths after eating.
