Today’s New York Times has a story about the rise in preschool cavities that is very interesting. It confirms the importance of good oral hygiene in children. If children are too young to brush properly, then parents should supervise and/or brush their children’s teeth at least two times per day, especially before bed. Also, children should never be put to bed with a bottle unless it has plain water in it. Anything else (juice, milk, etc.) can cause rampant “baby bottle caries.” See the full story here.
