Today, all of Great Britain is celebrating Prince George’s 3rd birthday! This charming little boy will now have all his baby teeth, and the first one won’t fall out for a couple years.
For young George and other toddlers like him, now is the most important time to take care of his primary teeth. Healthy baby teeth not only help establish good habits for permanent teeth care, but healthy baby teeth mean that the permanent teeth are more likely to come in healthy, too.
Yes, toddlers are susceptible to cavities! Bottle decay, caused by milk and juice that coat their small teeth, causes many toddlers’ cavities. This is why we recommend dental visits with us, even for little ones who haven’t had their teeth for very long. Preventative dental care and catching dental problems early is a great way to ensure your toddler keeps that precious smile! Make an appointment today!
