I have two grade-school-aged children. How do I keep their teeth cavity free?

Young girl smiling l Dentist Wilmington DEHere are six steps to stay free of tooth decay:

  1. Good home care with parent-assisted brushing and flossing.
  2. Fluoride topically and in water.
  3. Limited snacking because frequent consumption of starchy foods like crackers, breads, and sweets lead to tooth decay.
  4. Sealants in teeth with pits and grooves.
  5. Mouthguards in sports like football, baseball, basketball, soccer, hockey, skateboarding, and gymnastics.
  6. Regular visits to a dentist.
