Pediatric Dentistry is a very important part of a child’s overall health. News from a government survey wasn’t as good for the nation’s littlest mouths. The number of cavities in the baby teeth of children ages 2 to 5 increased by nearly 5 percent between 1988 and 2010.
Healthy teeth are important to your child’s growth and development. They help your child eat right, talk properly, and feel good about his/her smile. Baby teeth hold space for permanent teeth and assist in the development of the bones in the face and jaws. Keeping baby teeth healthy can also save children from the pain of a cavity—and from stress caused by the dental visit it may require.
