Cavity Prevention

The occurrence of childhood cavities and tooth decay can be prevented through proper diet, good dental hygiene, and regular pediatric dental visits. Proper cleaning, including tooth brushing and flossing, is important to remove acids and sugars from the surface of teeth, which can lead to tooth decay. For additional questions, talk to our friendly pediatric dentists and hygienists at Burg Children’s Dentistry.

Can my child’s diet affect their oral health?

Absolutely. A proper diet is important for your child so that their teeth develop appropriately. A diet high in sugary foods and other carbohydrates increases the probability of tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease.

What is an appropriate diet for my child to ensure oral health?

To maintain oral health, it is critical that your child has a naturally balanced diet. In order to ensure that your child is receiving all of the necessary vitamins and minerals, a daily diet should include all of the major food groups. Meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, breads, cereals as well as milk and other dairy products are all excellent sources of the nutrients that your child needs each day.

How do I create a diet that is safe for my child’s teeth and gums?

As previously stated, initiate a nutritious and balanced diet. Consider the amount and frequency of your child’s sugar and starch-based foods intake. Starch-based foods include items such as breads, pasta, and potato chips. Keep in mind that sugar is found in more than just candy and soda. All types of sugars can promote tooth decay. Be aware of the sugars that are found in most milk-based products.

Is it necessary to eliminate all sugar and starch from my child’s diet?

No, of course not. Many foods containing sugar, such as many milk-based products, are incredibly important to your child’s health. Starch-based foods are much safer for teeth when they are eaten in the context of a meal.

What are some tips regarding infant and early childhood tooth decay?

Never put your child to sleep with a bottle of milk, juice, or formula. The liquid from these drinks remains in the child’s mouth and supports the bacteria which produce acids that harm the teeth. Instead, put your child to bed with a pacifier or bottle of water.

How can I be sure that my child is getting the correct amount of fluoride in their diet?

Fluoride supplements are necessary for children who do not reside in a community that has fluoridated water. We, at Burg Children’s Dentistry, can determine the amount of fluoride supplement necessary in your child’s diet based upon their age, weight, current water fluoride levels, and toothpaste brand.

See What Our Patients Are Saying

They were so friendly and my daughter loved them! They made sure I understood everything before doing any work. I really felt like they loved my girl and wanted to make her comfortable. I would recommend them to everyone!

- Heather H.

Love Burg!! The dentists are fantastic, able to explain exactly what is needed and why. And they talk to my boys, instead of only to me; they include then kids in the decisions. Very patient and friendly. Love the front desk staff, too.

- Jessica K.

What a great experience! My son has been terrified of going to the dentist. The staff was so kind and engaging that he didn’t even bat an eye. They were able to get more done with no tears then the past three dental offices we went to.

- Sarah P.

We love Burg Children’s Dentistry! The staff is so kind and patient and they are so gentle with the kids. My daughter is four and loves going to the dentist because they make it so fun and comfortable. I’m grateful we live close to such a great dental office!

- Claire M.

I love this place, but what is more important is that my daughter loves this place. She looks forward to going to the dentist. I did not grow up with the same experience. I’m confident that she is being taken care of on every visit.

- Sara R.

Amazing staff. From the receptionist to the doctor himself. Very patient with my fifteen month old who wouldn’t lay down to me filling out my paperwork with a newborn in tow. Our family will be returning for sure!

- Jon & Melissa L.

The staff is so great with my kids. On the way for his visit he says, “I LOVE going to the dentist!” Which is funny considering how much I dread it! Dr Nielsen is so nice and takes the time to explain everything he sees.

- Christina T.

The folks at Burg Children’s Dentistry are excellent! Our four year old daughter loves going there and they have set her up to enjoy going to the dentist for years to come! I have recommended them to friends already! Thanks for a great job guys!
