Often times we hear parents say they aren’t concerned about the health of baby teeth because they will be falling out soon. This is not true! Baby teeth serve many purposes. Dental pain can cause a child to miss school, have sleepless nights, or even skip eating meals. Baby teeth aid in accurate speech development and also save space for the adult teeth to erupt in to.
Regular dental visits, healthy diet, fluoridated water and a daily brushing and flossing routine encourage a healthy, smiling child.
