Baby teeth will fall out no matter what, so what good does it do to clean them? If that’s what you believe, then this article 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 on below, and make sure you check up with us soon for an examination and cleaning of your child’s teeth.
Believe it or not, baby teeth play a central role in a child’s development, even though they do fall out. Tooth loss may make speaking right difficult for a child, and it may also make it too tough to consume a healthy diet. These effects can result in childhood obesity and speech therapy, and thwarting inadequate oral hygiene is easier than treating it.
Additionally, poor diet and a lack of dental hygiene routines will likely follow a child into their teenage years. To help your child make the habits they need, make them a diet lower in sugary foods and higher in vegetables and whole grains. Make sure that 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 grow into a set of adult teeth that will help your child for many years to come.
