WHY ARE BABY (PRIMARY) TEETH IMPORTANT?
Your child’s primary teeth are just as important as their adult teeth. They allow your child to chew and speak, as well as reserving the space required for adult teeth to erupt.
Daily care is essential so your child doesn’t experience pain from decay or infection that results in baby teeth being lost too early. This can result in the need for extensive and costly orthodontic treatment of adult teeth. If a child is taught to care for their baby teeth, they are more likely to do the same with their permanent teeth for an attractive and healthy smile in adulthood.

What is oil pulling and does it work?
Oil pulling is an Indian folk remedy that involves swishing oil around the mouth and using it like a mouthwash so bacteria is swept away and dissolved in the oil.
Plaque is the sticky film of bacteria that builds up on the teeth after eating creating a “furry” feeling. If this plaque is not removed daily, it can cause various dental problems including bad breath, gum disease, and cavities in the teeth.
Unfortunately, using mouthwash alone is not enough to remove this plaque. Any mouthwashes that your dentist recommends are designed to be an addition to your home care routine. Therefore, since oil pulling is designed to work in the same way as a mouthwash (chemical plaque control), it cannot replace daily brushing and flossing which mechanically removes plaque from your teeth.
Ask your dentist for recommendations on technique if you are having any trouble with flossing or brushing. Your efforts at home will make a big difference to the health of your gums and teeth long term!
