Baby teeth are going to fall out either way, so what good does it do to take care of them? If that’s what you believe, then this blog is written for you! Baby teeth are important to your child’s overall health, both in adolescence and their adult life. Find out why by reading below, and make sure to see us soon for an examination and cleaning of your child’s teeth.
Think it or not, baby teeth play a large role in a child’s development, even though they do fall out. Tooth loss may make talking right difficult for a child, and it may also make it too tough to eat a healthy meal plan. These problems can result in childhood obesity and speech therapy, and foiling poor dental hygiene is easier than caring for it.
Additionally, poor diet and a lack of oral hygiene practices will almost always follow a child into their teenage years. To help your child develop the habits they need, make them a diet lower in sugary foods and higher in vegetables and whole grains. Ensure that they brush their teeth twice per day, and if they’re old enough to brush on their own, monitor them so they don’t swallow the toothpaste. Be there for your child’s teeth now, and they’ll develop into a healthy set of adult teeth that will support your child for many years.
