What guidelines will help children remain cavity free?

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends:

  • Brush with a fluoride toothpaste twice a day.

  • Floss children’s teeth at least once a day.

  • Visit your Dentist regularly.

  • Get enough fluoride through drinking water, fluoride products and fluoride supplements, if necessary.

  • Have sealants applied to the chewing surfaces of permanent back teeth or molars.

  • Snack moderately-no more than twice a day.
