Your child’s diet and nutrition play an important role in their oral and overall health. Helping your child maintain a healthy diet will also decrease their risk of developing cavities or other damaging dental conditions as well as helping them avoid problems with their overall growth, development and health.
Each person’s metabolism is unique, and you may find some nutrients are more beneficial to your child than others. There are, however, some nutrients that will help your child’s oral health, such as vitamin A, which aids in tooth formation, and vitamin B, which helps the gums, teeth and tongue function properly. Our dentists will discuss your child’s health and oral needs with you to determine which type of nutrients will provide them with the greatest benefit.
