Do you ever forget to brush your little kids baby teeth?
Have you ever thought oh it's ok cuz they will fall out in a few years anyways?
Well I am glad my mom took good care of my baby teeth because I'm now 22 years old and I still have 3 of my one year old molars in my mouth!
They are in great condition because they were always well cared for.
I don't have adult teeth to replace these baby teeth. Some people don't get all their adult teeth and some families it's genetic to be missing some adult teeth.
In my case it's three 1yr molars. My uncle it was two canine teeth.
Sometimes forget to brush my sons teeth, but I never take it lightly, I have no idea but his teeth right now might have to last him the rest of his life like my baby teeth!
And hopefully if that happens, I will have kept them healthy enough that he can keep them around as long as possible.
So don't be flippant about caring for your kids baby teeth, you never know if they might be needing those for the rest of their life!
