BRING YOUR CHILD FOR CHECKUP
Dental caries, also known as tooth decay or cavities, are physically and emotionally the most devastating oral diseases in early childhood. They cause severe and rapid tooth decay in infants and may rob a child of their cute smile. As a result, the four upper front teeth are extracted by the age of two years. Unless promptly treated, it may completely destroy the primary teeth and trigger infections and abscesses that may harm the development of permanent teeth. However, this should not be the case because dental caries is 100 percent preventable. Visit our dentists in Milton to keep cavities at bay.
Good Oral Hygiene
Although baby teeth (primary teeth) are eventually replaced, they play a significant role. Same as permanent teeth, they are necessary for speech development, proper chewing and eating, and attractive appearance. They also facilitate the development of the jawbone and guide permanent teeth into position. These dietary habits are beneficial to a child's dental health:
- Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
- Visit your dentist regularly for a checkup and cleaning
- Flossing once a day
- Being keen to control what your child drinks and avoiding sugary or sticky foods
- Eat a well-balanced diet
