Yes, your child's baby teeth will fall out, but that doesn't mean they're less important. These little chompers help kids chew food, speak clearly, and hold space so permanent teeth can grow in straight.
Unfortunately, tooth decay is one of the most common childhood
health problems for kids in the United States. Tooth decay is not
only painful, it can also lead to other problems, such as ear and
sinus infections, difficulty speaking, and a lack of concentration.
Kids with dental problems are also more likely to miss school and
behind in class.
The good news is that you can help prevent cavities by encouraging your child to develop good dental habits.
