In honor of National Children’s Dental Health Month (February) we asked our hygienist, Yee Fong, “Does it really matter if a baby tooth gets a cavity?”
Yes it does matter!! Your child’s teeth need to be strong and healthy to chew, speak, smile with confidence, to sing, play a musical instrument and maintain proper space for the adult dentition to erupt into their proper position.
If your child prematurely loses a tooth/teeth, the tooth beside it may drift into the empty space, which then doesn’t allow for the adult teeth to erupt into it’s proper place. If your child has a tooth decay this can also cause a toothache and can be very uncomfortable for them!
Your child’s teeth are just as important as your adult teeth!
