Does your child have cavities?

If so, they are not alone! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 20% of kids between the ages of 2 – 5 have one or more cavities, and more than half of kids have experienced a cavity by age 8. The numbers continue to rise as children age, with more than 90% of people 20 years and older having experienced one or more cavities.

Even kids with good brushing and flossing habits can be at high risk for cavities. Why? And is there any way to better reduce the risk of cavities?

The root cause of cavities and other oral health issues

Many factors in our lives can contribute to an imbalance of the good and bad bacteria naturally found in our mouths, such as our diets, eating habits, oral-care routines, health issues, stress, and more. If a buildup of bad bacteria in our mouth is left out of balance, it can lead to bad breath, cavities, gum disease, and more.

As a dental provider, Dr. Ashley Kisling from SOCO Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics in Rancho Mission Viejo, CA, is always accessing the risk for future cavities in her patients. As she explains in her recent TikTok video, “Whether my patients have braces, are frequent snackers, have cavities that are up to 12 months old, big fillings, or other factors, they are at high risk of developing future cavities,” says Dr. Kisling.

One tasty, easy step to help protect kids’ from cavities

“That’s why we recommend replacing the bad bacteria that causes cavities with the good bacteria found in ProBiora oral-care probiotics,” Dr. Kisling added. ProBiora’s line of oral-care probiotics contain a patented blend of the good bacteria needed to crowd out the bad, disease-causing bacteria and restore the mouth’s natural balance. Taken daily after brushing, ProBiora gets to work, reaching below the gumline and underneath braces where brushing and flossing can’t.

Best of all, ProBioraKids comes in a creamsicle flavor that is very tasty and kids enjoy dissolving and chewing in their mouths – just watch Dr. Kisling’s video to see for yourself. Plus, it’s made with 100% natural ingredients too, and is safe to use with braces and other dental appliances.

Today, even patients who are at high risk of cavities don’t have to suffer from them. By crowding out the mouth’s bad bacteria and restoring its health with ProBiora oral-care probiotics, you can help take the risk of cavities out of your child’s future.
