Baby Teeth 101

baby teeth 101

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. 

The Importance of Baby Teeth:

  • Baby teeth help to save space in the mouth for the permanent teeth to come in healthy, strong and straight
  • Baby teeth help to form sounds and words. If a child loses these teeth prematurely, it can lead to speech problems
  • Baby teeth help to round out the face and can promote positive self-esteem in children

Early Childhood Cavities

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.  

Promote Healthy Habits

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!
