The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends:

  • Brush with a fluoride toothpaste twice a day (for children 2 years or older.)
  • Floss children’s teeth once a day.
  • Visit your pediatric or general dentist regularly.
  • Ensure that fluoride is consumed through drinking water, fluoride products, and fluoride supplements.
  • Apply sealants to the chewing surfaces of permanent molars
  • Snack moderately, no more than twice a day. It is best to snack on foods with minimal or no sugar content. Fresh fruits and vegetables make great snacks.
