Children Oral Care Tips

Why are baby teeth so important?

Baby teeth are very important to your child’s health and development. They help with proper chewing, speaking and smile.

Baby teeth allow normal development of the jawbones and muscles, save space for the adult teeth to grow into place. If a baby tooth is lost too soon, adult teeth may come in crooked.

Here are 5 tips put together by dental health professionals to help your children develop healthy, strong, and straight teeth.

  • Stop thumb sucking
  • Start healthy hygiene habit early
  • Make tooth brushing a good habit!
  • Visit your dentist no later than your child’s 1st birthday

The main reason for the early loss of baby teeth is decay. As soon as the first tooth erupts in the mouth, it is susceptible to cavities. With proper oral care, cavities are mostly preventable.

Crooked teeth might be caused by poor dental health, overuse of dummies and bottles, or just be due to genetics.

Looking out for your child’s dental health in their early years can minimise the long-term impact.
