Why are baby teeth so important?
Baby teeth play a crucial role in your child's development, aiding in speech development, proper chewing, and guiding the growth of permanent teeth. They also help maintain space for permanent teeth and contribute to a confident smile.
My baby doesn't have teeth yet, is there anything I should be doing?
Even before the first tooth appears, it's important to gently clean your baby's gums with a soft cloth or infant toothbrush and introduce them to the concept of oral hygiene.
