Don't Believe These Myths About Kids' Teeth

Bitesize Pediatric Dentistry in Brooklyn busts six common misconceptions
By: Bitesize Pediatric Dentistry
BROOKLYN, N.Y. - June 15, 2020 - PRLog -- Baby teeth don't matter because they'll fall out anyway. It's not important for young kids to floss. You don't need to brush your child's teeth until they have their full set. All of these things have one thing in common: many parents believe them but they're simply not true. Bitesize Pediatric Dentistry is here to give you the facts you need to take care of your child's teeth effectively from day one.

When taken at face value, these myths about children's teeth seem like "common knowledge." Intuitively, it makes sense to think that you don't need to brush or floss baby teeth since they'll eventually be replaced by adult ones. But the primary teeth play a significant role in your child's oral and facial development. They need to be cared for properly to set the foundation for strong adult teeth.

Or maybe you think that a general dentist has the expertise to treat your child's teeth. This may be true, but there's a lot more to kids' oral health than you might think. A pediatric dentist, like the doctors at Bitesize Pediatric Dentistry (, have specialty training to treat developing mouths. They also have specific techniques to help kids feel at ease in the dentist chair.

So when should you start brushing your kids' teeth? Do kids really need to see a pediatric dentist? Are sugary drinks as bad for children's teeth as they say? Read the full article to get the answers to all your common questions about dentistry for kids from your Brooklyn and Park Slope pediatric dentists (
