Cavities are Caused By Bad Bacteria
The bacteria that cause cavities are passed from parents to their children. Parents who take good care of their own teeth reduce the number of bacteria in their mouths, and have less chance that these bad bugs will pass to their kids. Mom and Dad can help keep their kid's teeth healthy by simply brushing and flossing twice each day themselves!
At Dr. Alan Cooper's Burien dental office, family dentistry means we treat each member of the family, as well as the whole family, so that we achieve the outstanding results we strive for.
