My Child Was Diagnosed With Acid Reflux!

What can I do as a parent to help maintain my child’s teeth?

Try to reduce the acid in the mouth by:

  • Limiting acidic foods and drinks like candy, carbonated beverages, fruit juices and refined sugars
  • Drinking plenty of water throughout the day
  • Using a straw to bypass the teeth
  • Using an over-the-counter fluoride rinse
  • Trying to eat acidic foods with your meals
  • Making sure your child does NOT brush immediately after consuming acidic foods; INSTEAD rinse with water or a fluoride rinse

What more can I do?

  • Advise their dentist of their condition
  • Get additional fluoride varnish applications during the year by your dentist or hygienist
  • Ask your dentist about a prescription fluoride gel that has a higher fluoride content
