Why Your Child’s Baby Teeth Need to be Babied

As a parent, you may think that baby teeth aren’t important because they’re going to fall out anyway. But your pediatric dentist will disagree because baby teeth actually pave the way for your child’s future dental health.

Protection for Dental Health and Happiness

Even though baby teeth fall out at an early age, they make a major a difference in later dental development and health. According to family dentistry experts, a child who has unhealthy teeth greatly increases their risk of tooth decay and dental disease in their teen years and as an adult. In addition to affecting dental health, childhood tooth decay can lead to:

  • Tooth loss
  • Other infections in the body
  • Speech problems
  • Lack of proper nutrition
  • Low self-esteem
  • Costly corrective treatment

But by regularly having your child see a kid’s dentist and taking good care of their baby teeth, you can reduce your child’s risk of these problems.

Caring for Your Child’s Baby Teeth

You can help your child have healthy baby teeth by establishing good oral habits from a very early age. To prepare your child for a lifetime of dental health, family dentistry experts recommend these four simple steps:

  1. Take your child to a pediatric dentist by their first birthday to start developing healthy oral hygiene habits.
  2. Brush your child’s baby teeth at least twice a day with a small toothbrush.
  3. Fill your child’s bedtime bottle with water instead of sugary formula, milk, or juice, all of which can cause early tooth decay.
  4. Schedule regular visits to a kid’s dentist for cleanings, check-ups, and necessary treatment.
