Oct 14, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Tooth decay is caused where acids produced by bacteria in the mouth damage the enamel of the teeth. Some Signs Of Tooth Decay in Children include changes in the color of the tooth, Pain while biting into food or eating or Bad breath

Some of the causes Of Tooth Decay in Children include Food like chocolates and sugary eatables, Beverages like Juices, soft drinks, and even milk can result in tooth decay. Also if there are medical conditions like chronic allergies, he/she may resort to mouth breathing, which reduces the flow of saliva, increasing the chances of cavities. You should not let your child have a bottle of milk in his/her when he/she falls asleep. Encourage your child to drink milk or juice from a cup rather than sipping it slowly. It is also important you brush your child's teeth twice a day with pea-sized toothpaste especially after he/she consumes any sweets. And avoid giving your child sugary foods and fruits which contain a high amount of acid content.

Encourage your child to drink water during meal times rather than sipping on juices. Limit sugary drinks and snacks. 

Teach your child the importance of taking care of his/her teeth right from the beginning.
