The Importance of Heart Health

Ask The Experts

My child’s baby teeth are going to fall out anyways, why do I need to brush them?

Your child’s baby teeth are very important in maintaining proper spacing to allow the adult teeth to properly erupt once the baby teeth fall out. Therefore it is very important to maintain them as long as possible. If by chance one of the baby teeth is knocked out, go see a dentist to assess whether or not a space maintenance appliance would be necessary.
