Dr Dental – Baby Dental Appointment Time
Question: Why should on have to take a toddler to the dentist when their teeth just fall out anyway when their adult teeth come in?
Answer: It is true that our primary teeth are eventually replaced with our permanent (adult) teeth, but your child dental health is still very important to their oral health and overall health care. Once a baby tooth starts to decay, the bacteria in their mouth progresses pretty quickly, seeping thorough the tooth and going to the bone. Potentially causing dental infections that an even be fatal. Sure that is the worst consequence. Yet even if that dose not happen, if bacteria lurk in the baby teeth, the enamel for adult teeth may not be formed properly and they can be permanently damaged.
