Baby teeth may be smaller in size, but that doesn't make them any less important. In fact, they help kids begin to chew solid foods, thereby supporting good nutrition. These teeth also help kids learn how to speak clearly, and they hold a place for the bigger permanent teeth to come in. By teaching kids healthy habits early, they can build a better oral health routine that lasts for life.
