Tips on Caring for Your Child’s Teeth

Many parents think it’s okay to wait until permanent teeth come in to visit the dentist, however the sooner parents get their kids involved in a good dental habits, the better. It’s very important that children keep their baby teeth until the permanent teeth are ready to come in. When baby teeth are lost prematurely, it can cause the other teeth to move around trying to fill the space, which can lead to a need for braces later.

Be sure to get your children accustomed to brushing and flossing as early as possible. Help your children develop positive attitudes about seeing the dentist and caring for their teeth.
