Assess Cavity Risk

Know your child's dental health risk

When your child’s first tooth erupts, it’s essential to develop routine brushing habits right away to prevent tooth decay, which is the most common chronic childhood disease. Without proper dental hygiene, bacteria uses food to create acid that damages the enamel on your child’s teeth, causing decay overtime.

As a quick rule of thumb, your child may be at risk for tooth decay if they have noticeable plaque accumulation, white spots, visible decalcifications, or they do not have a primary pediatric dentist.

If your child has noticeable plaque accumulation, white spots, visible decalcifications, uses a sippy cup for fluids other than water, snacks frequently, or they do not have a primary pediatric dentist, they may be at risk.
