He might recommend fluoride treatment or sealants as a prevention strategy or fillings, crowns, or extractions as needed if your child has tooth decay. Ideal Dental of Tucson also offers Invisalign clear aligners to straighten older children’s teeth and perfect their beautiful smiles.

How often should I schedule appointments for my child?

  • Tooth pain
  • Other signs of tooth decay

To properly care for your child’s teeth at home, encourage them to brush twice daily using fluoride toothpaste, floss every day, and eat a healthy diet rich in vegetables but low in added sugar. Have them avoid chewing on ice, hard candy, and other hard objects.
