Routine Care – Six Month Checkups
On each subsequent visit, we take the time to make your child’s visit enjoyable and to answer all his or her questions.
Why is it so important to keep primary teeth healthy, if the child will one day lose them and get their permanent adult teeth? Four good reasons:
- Children develop good eating habits and speech pronunciation.
- Healthy baby teeth preserve space for permanent teeth to erupt, helping limit the need for braces in the future.
- Decayed teeth can be painful and represent a source of infection that could become a significant health concern. No one wants to have a toothache or an abscessed tooth.
- Finally, healthy teeth are important to a child’s forming positive self-esteem.
