Chances are, you've heard a ton of dental tips from your friends and family over the years. While those tips can be extremely helpful, it is important to remember that they might not always be true! These are a few common tips and tricks you might have heard, and while they may seem believable, they're just misconceptions!
Unlike cuts and scrapes, tooth pain is usually caused by decay which has no way of healing itself! Make sure to contact us if your child complains about a toothache.
Although baby teeth will eventually fall out, they are very important! They affect the way your child's speech and chewing develop, and could even impact the way their adult teeth come in.
Brushing teeth involves manual dexterity that most kids develop when they're around 8. Before that, it can be tricky for them to get all the spots they should be cleaning.
Cavities are caused by bacteria that can come from many snacks like cookies, juice, or even milk. Despite how healthy their diet might be, brushing is important!
This is not true at all! Your child should see a dentist as early as their first tooth emerges , or at least before their first birthday.
