Tooth decay is a very difficult problem a child can face. Tooth problems early in the life of a child can cause the child lose confidence, because of the loss of aesthetic appearance.

Every parent should know these most important methods of preventing tooth decay in their child. These methods include the following

The best method to prevent the child from getting tooth decay is to give plain water to the child before the child sleeps.

The parents who bottle feed the child can have more problems in the child's teeth. The best method to prevent the tooth decay is to stop the bottle feed that the child is getting.
