When it comes to taking care of your child’s oral health, you may think you are doing enough. Getting them to brush twice a day and floss once a day may seem like they are headed in the right direction. But a lot is happening at a level that you can’t see, and that development could lead to dental problems down the road. Did you know that you can actually help your child to avoid and reduce the amount of oral treatment they may need later on? It’s true!
