young age are more likely to keep up the care as they get older.

Tooth decay (dental caries) affects children in the United States more than any other chronic infectious disease. Untreated tooth decay causes pain and infections that may lead to problems such as eating, speaking, playing, and learning.
The good news is that tooth decay and other oral diseases that can affect children are preventable. The combination of dental sealants and fluoride has the potential to nearly eliminate tooth decay in school-age children.
What Parents and Caregivers Can Do
Here are some things you can do to ensure good oral health for your child:
Encourage your children to eat regular nutritious meals and avoid frequent between-meal snacking.
Protect your child's teeth with fluoride.
Use fluoride toothpaste. If your child is less than 7 years old, only put a pea-sized amount on their toothbrush.
If your drinking water is not fluoridated, talk to your child's dentist or physician about the best way to protect your child's teeth.
Talk to your child's dentist about dental sealants. They protect the teeth from decay.
If you're pregnant, get prenatal care and eat a healthy diet. The diet should include folic acid to prevent birth defects of the brain and spinal cord and possibly cleft lip/plate.
