Your child’s baby teeth are only in place for a few short years, but they are influential in their oral health and development. They allow your child to learn how to eat and speak. Each tooth also acts as a placeholder for their adult teeth. If a primary tooth is lost too soon, it can have lasting consequences for your child’s dental health. Tooth decay is the biggest threat to young smiles. Cavities are more common than childhood asthma, but you can keep decay at bay with a great oral hygiene routine from a young age. Unfortunately, children often view brushing as a chore. You may sound like a broken record reminding your little one to brush their teeth, but that may not be the best approach. According to a new study, praising your child may be the secret to winning the brushing battle.
