Taking good care of your child’s teeth must start even before the first tooth appears. You can prevent tooth decay in your child by following good dental habits.
Tooth decay can develop as soon as the first tooth erupts. Brushing every day may not be enough to prevent it. If tooth decay is not prevented it can be costly to treat. If left untreated, it can destroy the teeth. This can cause infection, early loss of baby teeth, crooked adult teeth, and decay in adult teeth.
