It is a fact that children's teeth are more prone to cavities than adults. Children need supervision at home when cleaning their teeth. Often times, they miss back areas or grooves in teeth or simply do not do a good job when brushing. They also tend to eat more often, grazing throughout the day. Any time you eat, acid is produced in the mouth to help digest the food, but it also contributes to decay of tooth enamel.

It is safe and very effective. It will help to prevent the occurrence of cavities and keep your child's smile natural.
