Children’s dental care is often overlooked in Vancouver, because many parents think that baby teeth are just going to fall out and be replaced by adult teeth. However, regular family dental care is important for all family members—young and old.
Taking care of baby teeth is one of the most valuable lessons to teach young, impressionable children. Aside from the fact that tooth decay is the most preventable illness in children, not taking care of baby teeth can lead to future problems as an adult.
