The key importance of healthy baby teeth:
Allow good nutrition through chewing
Help in speech development
Help to build self-esteem
Help a child to be engaged in learning at school and to pay attention without distraction from tooth pain.

When should I start bringing my child to a dental clinic?
The ideal timing is as soon as you see the first baby tooth. A baby typically starts to have baby teeth before their first birthday. Bringing a young child to a dental clinic early will help him or her to familiarize with the dental office environment. This multiple dental visits with positive experience will help them to keep good oral hygiene as they grow older and will reduce the risk of having tooth decays.
What is Early Childhood Decay?
Early Childhood Decay (ECC) is found in young children in age between 0 and 4. If early child decays are not treated this can lead to infection and can possibly damage underlying adult teeth. Unfortunately, children of this age group typically needs sedation or general anesthesia at a dental hospital due to their level of cooperation and their young age.
