Great question! Yes, in fact, tooth decay is preventable! Decay, which is caused by sugars left in your child’s mouth, can turn into an acid, which in turn can break down his or her teeth. Children are at high risk for tooth decay for a simple reason: many children and adolescents tend to be lax in their oral hygiene habits.
So, how can your child prevent tooth decay?
Finally, make sure your child visits Vine Street Family Dental Care approximately every six months for a checkup and routine cleaning! Please give us a call at our Salt Lake City, Utah office.
