Why does my child have cavities?

Cavities can be caused by a number of things.  Your child may only be drinking milk and juice.  Although juice contains a lot of water, it also contains a lot of sugar.  There is also a significant amount of sugar in milk as well.  Children should have milk or juice with meals and water in between meals.  Children should never be allowed to walk around with milk or juice in a bottle or sippy cup. If you have questions about this call us and make an appointment 317-336-8478 (DENTIST).
