Protect Teeth From Decay
« on: July 07, 2012, 12:08:17 PM »

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to prevent tooth decay in children:

  1.  Brush baby's teeth and gums regularly.

  2.  Never allow baby to take food or a bottle to bed.

  3.  Restrict a bottle or sippy cup to mealtimes only.

  4.  Make sure your water is fluoridated, or talk to your dentist about fluoride supplements.

  5.  Avoid sticky, sweet treats such as candy, cookies or fruit roll-ups.
