Why, perhaps you’re wondering, do I have to take care of my baby’s teeth when they will just fall out anyway? There are a number of reasons baby teeth are important. Without them, your child may have difficulty chewing and learning to speak. Plus they serve as placeholders for permanent teeth. If they fall out early, adult teeth may come in crooked or drift out of place.

Baby bottle tooth decay occurs when baby is given a bottle of juice or milk to help him or her fall asleep. The sugary liquid pools in the mouth, leading to cavities.
