Cartoon dentalBaby teeth are the very first teeth to pop up in the mouth, and they fall out after just a few years to be replaced with an adult permanent tooth. So if they are going to fall out and be replaced with a new tooth is it important to take good care of them?

Baby teeth are the predecessors of the permanent teeth and they make room in the mouth for the permanent tooth to grow in properly. If the baby tooth is in bad shape with cavities and rot then it is likely that the permanent tooth will also have cavities. The baby tooth paves the way for the permanent tooth to have room to come through the gum so it is important to take good care of baby teeth.

Keep them healthy by seeing just for kids dentistry every 6 months for a check-up and cleaning starting at the age of 1 year. Although if you see something sooner,  then make an appointment have it check out.
