When Your Kid Needs A Root Canal Treatment

Why It’s Important To Monitor Brushing

Sometimes, your kids will say or do something that blows you away because they seem so mature! You may even find yourself calling a friend or family member to let them in on whatever just happened to cause you to think your little one is quickly approaching adulthood. While this is always a wonderful experience to have, it’s very important to remember that when it comes to dental hygiene, your kid is likely still very much a kid, so monitoring brushing sessions is essential. Why so? Well, consider some reasons that might sound very familiar.
