  • Eat a well balanced diet, limiting sugars and sweets.
  • Brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day.
  • Ask your dentist or pediatrician about fluoride supplements to prevent tooth decay.
  • Avoid Nursing Bottle Syndrome, a severe form of tooth decay. It is caused by giving your child a bottle containing milk, formula or juice at bedtime or for long periods of time during the day. If your child wants a bottle at bedtime, fill it with water only and remove it once the child falls asleep.
  • Avoid the use of all tobacco products.
  • Only put water in bottles or sippy cups between meals for your child.
