Why is professional dental care important for children?
Milk teeth are important for chewing, speaking and your child’s appearance.
Milk teeth must receive proper professional care to prevent toothaches, cavities and severe decay.
If decay causes premature loss of a milk tooth, adjacent permanent teeth may drift into the empty space. This can cause crooked teeth & and an eventual need for braces.
Habits such as thumb sucking, mouth breathing and tongue thrusting can affect child’s teeth, the appearance of facial features and cause speech problems. A pediatric dentist can address these habits before they lead to greater problem.
By getting your child’s regular check up, you can either avoid braces or make the orthodontic treatment time much shorter.
