By preschool age, most children have around 20 baby teeth, also known as ‘primary teeth’. While these teeth are not permanent, it is still important to monitor your child’s baby teeth and establish healthy oral habits early on.
Early Childhood Caries (Cavities) is a dental condition that can affect young children. Too much sugar and improper dental hygiene habits can lead to serious cavities, tooth decay, and pain. Luckily, this condition is preventable with proper tooth brushing, flossing and limiting sugary drink and snack intake.
Be sure to talk to your child about the importance of proper oral hygiene. Promoting a strong, shiny smile can give your child a self confidence boost and encourage lasting, healthy habits!
