To prepare for your checkup with our office, please help your child recognize that visiting the dentist can be a fun experience. Tell them that the dentist is going to look at their teeth and do what it takes to help them feel better. Speak with your child about what acceptable behavior at the dentist’s office appears, and reward them accordingly when they act politely.

To help your child as they recuperate after successful treatment of baby bottle tooth decay, focus on strengthening their diet. A good diet can be the greatest medicine, and diets featuring foods that reinforce teeth are the best diets. Foods that strengthen pearly whites include foods high in vitamins A, D, and K, foods high in calcium and foods high in phosphorous. For best results, avoid sugary foods and drinks.
