Good habits start at a young age. This is especially true when it comes to teaching kids the importance of brushing their teeth everyday. Why bother you ask? Baby teeth will come out anyway! Yes, it's true those baby pearls will eventually come out. Then again, do you know that baby teeth doesn't fall out until they're around five or six years old? Five or six years without proper dental care can lead to cavities and infection that cause damage to permanent teeth.
Poor dental care doesn't just affect teeth. An overgrowth of bacteria from poor oral hygiene can spread to other parts of the body like the heart or lungs and can have lasting effects into adulthood. Why risk what can be avoided in the first place? By teaching your kids to brush their teeth regularly you can ensure that their teeth remain cavity-free and their hearts and lungs healthy for years to come.
