Birth to 3 yr old

Tooth decay is a chronic health concern for children. It can lead to pain, infection, malnutrition, and premature loss of baby teeth, which can affect the development of adult teeth. The presence of bleeding gums and cavities in baby teeth increases the chances of these problems occurring in their adult teeth. Good oral health habits are therefore essential, and, if started early, will increase the opportunity for a healthy mouth right through to adulthood.

 

Why are children’s baby teeth important?

Baby teeth are important for eating a good diet, jaw growth, appearance, speech and most importantly, to keep the spacing for their adult teeth. Baby teeth are replaced by adult teeth at certain times that are specific for your child. Baby teeth lost early because of tooth decay is, maybe a cause for crooked teeth in children.
