Dental Myths Vol I

March 12th 2016

shutterstock_30240271 (400 x 600)In the clinic I sometimes get asked some rather strange questions or hear some strange statements around the subject of how people care for their teeth. Some of these things are ineffective but harmless but some things can actually do more harm than good. Over the next couple of articles I wanted to consider, and where necessary correct, some commonly held misconceptions or misunderstandings concerned with dental care or treatment.

MYTH: There is no need to take care of children’s teeth as they all fall out and are replaced by adult teeth anyway.
TRUTH: This is absolutely wrong.
