Baby teeth fall out either way, so what good does it do to take care of them? If that’s what you think, then this post is written for you! Baby teeth are vital to your child’s overall dental hygiene, both in adolescence and adulthood. Find out why by reading on below, and ensure that you see us soon for an examination and cleaning of your child’s teeth.
Believe it or not, baby teeth play a vital role in a child’s development, even though they fall out. Tooth loss may make speaking correctly difficult for a child, and it may also make it too hard to eat a healthy diet. These concerns can result in childhood obesity and speech therapy, and avoiding inadequate dental hygiene is easier than treating it.
Additionally, poor diet and a lack of oral hygiene routines will almost always follow a child into their adult life. To help your child make the habits they need now, create them a diet lower in sugary foods and higher in vegetables and whole grains. Make sure they brush their teeth twice daily, and if they’re old enough to brush their teeth on their own, watch over them so they don’t swallow the toothpaste. Be there for your child’s oral health now, and they’ll develop into a set of adult teeth that will assist your child for many years to come.
