Seeing a Denver Pediatric Dentist Aids Cavity Prevention Among Kids
Ask any experienced Denver dentist and (s)he will tell you that the best way to prevent cavities is to brush your teeth properly. Remind your child to gently brush the outside, inside, and chewing surfaces of their teeth using quick and short back-and-forth strokes. While it is advised to brush teeth after every meal, tell your child to wait at least 30 minutes before doing so. The acidic content of a meal leaves enamel softer than it usually is, oftentimes soft enough to be scraped away by toothbrush bristles.
