I live in the UK and my family have always drunk tap water which has added fluoride. Bottled water seems to me to be an expensive con. Surely US water is as pure as in the UK?

So scary. Thankfully, there are a few things people can do to help their children's smiles stay healthy. Drink more water and cut out sodas, sport's drinks, and energy drinks when possible. Also, always brush and floss each day. Don't forget checkups either! If your kid has cavities, you dentist can provide restoration. You can find common examples at my website: http://cerritosdentalsurgery.com

Very sad, especially considering how easy it would be to prevent cavities. Here is an example of the children's dental care your dentist will typically provide (from my website) http://jamesstewartdds.com/livonia-general-de... . Basically, brushing, flossing, and routine checkups and cleanings go a long towards maintaining a healthy smile.

The first dentist appointment I can remember going to led to having six teeth pulled. I can't remember what the exact reason was, but it was terrifying at the time. I think that people should feel lucky if they only need cavities filled. Either way though, we need to figure out how to improve the dental health of everybody, but especially children. If we can do that, it will make things better for everyone.

Your child can start brushing and flossing on her own at around age 7. If she can tie her own shoes, chances are she's ready to brush solo. She should now brush for two minutes.
Look for food and plaque around the gum line of her teeth to see whether she's doing a sufficient job. You can also let her chew gum with Xylitol.

What else do they do at 7?
