Children's Dentistry Jacksonville FL

Choosing Your Child’s Dentist is Like Choosing Their Pediatrician

The main goal in children’s dentistry is instilling good habits early. This is essential for a lifetime of good oral health. It’s also important to provide a comfortable, fun environment so they want to keep coming back.

Because children are not able to brush well on their own, it is important for parents to be involved in their child’s daily dental care. This ensures both thorough cleaning and the development of proper dental habits. Little kids tend to eat more often during the day (grazing). This results in a prolonged exposure to acid (every time you eat you make acid), which may cause more cavities.

A tooth that isn’t completely clean will also be exposed to acid when food and juice contact it. This acid can be responsible for speeding up the development of cavities. The good news is that identifying poor dietary and hygiene habits, along with applying a fluoride varnish to the mineralizing teeth, can significantly reduce the risk of cavities.
