Like adults, children are at risk for developing cavities. While visiting a children’s dentist regularly is important for monitoring oral health and detecting cavities early, prevention is always best. If you’re wondering what causes a cavity to form in the first place, check out this video.
You’ll learn that cavities are actually caused by the acids that bacteria in the mouth emit after eating. Daily brushing and flossing are essential to preventing cavities, so be sure to help your child perform these tasks.
