3 Cavity Fighters For Timonium Kids

East Bel Air Pediatric and Cosmetic Dentistry

Most East Bel Air parents know children’s oral health basics: brush regularly, reduce sugar intake, limit snacking, and get adequate amounts of calcium and Vitamin D. Dr. Steven W. Haywood recommends three additional tools for preventing cavities in toddlers and children.

 

Sealants
Fluoride supplements
Oral rinses

Resin dental sealants are applied by your Baltimore dentist. The material bonds to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, protecting the pits and fissures from decay. Some Maryland dental insurance providers cover dental sealants, so check with your provider if you are considering them.

Fluoride supplements help strengthen still-forming teeth prior to eruption. You can get a prescription from your East Bel Air pediatrician or talk to us at Dr. Steven W. Haywood in Timonium. There is one caveat, however: if you have fluoridated water, your pediatrician may advise against taking additional fluoride in supplement form.

If your child is taking fluoride supplements, is an oral rinse redundant? Actually, no. Fluoride supplements help strengthen teeth that are still forming, but a fluoride rinse helps teeth that have already come in. Oral rinses containing fluoride can be purchased at any North Phoenix Lupton Farm, Jarrettsville, or East Bel Air grocery store. Make sure you buy one specifically formulated for children. Products labeled as a mouthwash are usually intended only for breath-freshening and may not contain fluoride.

I recommend East Bel Air children use an oral rinse after they brush and floss at night. They are most effective when they are the last substance on teeth before kids go to bed.

At Dr. Steven W. Haywood, we believe that with proper preventative dentistry, Baltimore area kids can enjoy healthy teeth for life
