Some parents assume that since baby teeth fall out rapidly, they are not that important. However, this is not the case. Baby teeth play an important role in your child’s health and development. Here are some reasons why:
- They help your child chew and smile
- They assist in speech development
- They hold space in the jaw for permanent teeth to come in
Take into consideration that decay can happen at any age. Visit the dentist as soon as your child’s first tooth erupts.
