Baby teeth are just as important as permanent teeth and play a significant role in your child’s overall development.
Baby teeth might only be around for a short time, but they serve an important role in your child’s development. If your child has a cavity, it’s best to get it filled according to their dentist’s recommendations. Not caring for your child’s baby teeth now can affect their adult teeth and create more issues as they grow.
Help your child brush their teeth for two minutes, twice a day. Set a timer and brush along with them. Show them the right way to clean their teeth. Floss with them and have them floss along with you.
Regular professional cleanings and exams can catch the smallest areas of decay so they can be fixed while they are tiny, less traumatic, and less costly to treat. A healthy diet with limited access to juice and other sugary food and drink can also help your child’s enamel grow strong. Establishing healthy choices now lays the building blocks for healthy habits that they will carry with them into adulthood.
