Although raising a toddler is time consuming, it’s important not to neglect their oral health.

Key takeaways:

– Although baby teeth will eventually be replaced by adult teeth, it’s still vital to clean them properly to prevent problems when adult teeth emerge.

– Avoid giving toddlers sugary drinks at bedtime as this can lead to ‘baby bottle tooth decay’ and potentially fever and additional dental trauma.

– Take your toddler for regular check-ups at the dentist to spot any problems early.

“Prevention is less traumatic and cost way less than bringing your child for a treatment.”
