If your children have bad teeth or cavities, don’t worry. There are some ways to help fix cavities at home. And of course, regular visits to the dentist can help improve your child’s health. Kool Smiles provides education and affordable care for the whole family.
Cavities and tooth decay are a big deal for children. The CDC says cavities are the number one chronic illness in American kids. Almost every child has some tooth decay, which can lead to cavities.
Helping children have healthy teeth starts at home. Before you learn how to fix cavities, it is easier to stop them from forming in the first place.
These are some basic tips to get you started. Kool Smiles has lesson plans to help you reinforce good dental habits in your children.
