It’s important to start good dental habits early in life. Even though baby teeth will eventually fall out, they serve very important functions for children’s overall health, nutrition, and they are placeholders for permanent teeth. Let’s talk about some tips for maintaining your children’s teeth for life:
Schedule your child’s first appointment before their 1st birthday, as soon as they have their first couple teeth. This is important because it allows your children to acclimate to the office environment and allows us to catch any problems early.
Healthy teeth mean healthy kids, healthy adults, and less pain, less missed schooldays, and less cost (both dental and medical) over time. For more tips, check out 2min2x.org!
