3. How often should a child visit a dentist?

A child should visit every six months, but depending on the child’s dental health more visits may be required.

4. What can cause cavities?

Our mouth has a lot of bacteria. When these bacteria come into contact with sugary foods, acids are produced. The acids decay the enamel-producing holes or cavities on the teeth surfaces.

Mouth-guards are helpful for protecting teeth. Your child can use a custom-fitted mouth-guard or a full face helmet to protect teeth, cheeks, lips and gums during sports.
