Is a Composite Filling Avoidable?
Composite fillings are a reaction to repair decay or damage to a tooth. The best way to avoid composite fillings, is to avoid cavities! Preventative dental care should be a part of your child’s daily routine. Be sure your child brushes their teeth, with a fluoride toothpaste, for two minutes, at least two times a day. There is no harm in you stepping in when they are finished to take a turn too. Flossing at least once a day will help with those pesky tight spaces between teeth also. Taking care by providing healthy choices of snacks and the foods that they eat and setting limits on drinking juices and soda will go a long way to help. Routine visits to the dentist for check-ups and cleanings are also an important part of preventative care.
