Dr. Whalen’s “Tooth Truths for Little Teeth”
TRUTH: BABY TEETH ARE IMPORTANT
WHY: They help in speech development, with chewing and biting correctly, and creating space for those permanent teeth to grow in.
TRUTH: FLUORIDE IS ESSENTIAL
WHY: Fluoride protects your child’s teeth by hardening the protective layer known as enamel and reversing breakdown from certain foods/drinks that can cause cavities.
TRUTH: CAVITIES ARE PREVALENT IN CHILDREN
WHY: 42% of kids experience tooth decay, aka cavities! Sugary juices, not brushing correctly, and bad eating habits can be a real problem.
Because a HEALTHY SMILE = a HAPPY CHILD!
