Baby teeth are temporary, but they are important. Not only do they enable kids to eat and speak correctly, but they serve as placeholders for permanent teeth, helping them to grow in straight and preventing them from drifting out of place.

To keep your baby’s teeth healthy and prevent baby bottle tooth decay, practice meticulous oral hygiene and make sure the child visits the dentist before her first birthday. And never let her fall asleep with the aid of a bottle.
