Preventing tooth decay in children and teenagers

Tooth decay, also known as dental cavities or caries, is the most common dental problem amongst children. It can cause painful holes (cavities) in your teeth. The tooth material surrounding the cavity usually needs to be drilled out and then filled to keep the tooth decay from getting worse. But careful prevention can help to make treatment unnecessary.Regularly brushing your teeth and strengthening them by using fluoride are the most effective ways of preventing tooth decay. Sticking to a healthy diet and not eating too much candy or sweets is also important. And dental check-ups can also help detect and treat tooth decay early on.
