Your Child’s Baby Teeth
A common assumption is that the primary dentition doesn’t require the same care as permanent teeth in children, since baby teeth will fall out eventually anyway. However, baby teeth are crucial to healthy growth in kids. Cavities in the primary dentition can actually lead to a child’s oral health being compromised down the line. Keeping baby teeth healthy can also aid in the development of normal speech patterns, as well as proper bite as an adult and overall good nutrition.
