Busting Dental Myths in Paediatric Dentistry

This month, we're excited to embark on a journey of discovery as we unravel some of the most common dental myths in paediatric dentistry. Armed with accurate information, we can provide the best care possible for our young patients and empower parents to make informed decisions about their children's oral health.

The Power of Dental Myth Busting

Myths surrounding paediatric dental care can lead to confusion and missed opportunities for preventive measures. Let's shine a light on a few of these myths...

Myth 1 - Baby Teeth Aren't Important

Baby teeth are vital for speech, nutrition, and guiding permanent teeth into position.

Myth 2 - Fruit Juices are Healthy for Teeth

Many fruit juices are high in sugar and can contribute to tooth decay.

Myth 3 - Dental Visits Should Only Happen When There's a Problem

Regular check-ups are essential for early detection and prevention of dental issues.

Myth 4 - Brushing Harder is Better

Brushing too vigorously can damage tooth enamel and gums. A gentle yet thorough approach is best.

Myth 5 - Baby Teeth Don't Need Fillings

Untreated cavities in baby teeth can lead to pain, infections, and complications.
