How Do I Answer My Child’s Dental Questions?

Posted on January 27th, 2021

Houston dentist, Dr. Meghna Dassani at Dassani Dentistry gives answers to some common questions that kids might ask about their teeth.Kids aren’t afraid to ask questions about everything under the sun, and teeth are just one of the many mysteries they will ponder. At Dassani Dentistry, our pediatric patients come up with some of the most interesting questions we hear—and we hear questions all day! 

Most of the time, kids’ questions about teeth are fairly basic:

  • Why do I have to floss?
  • Do we really have to brush our teeth every day?
  • Why do we use toothpaste?
  • Why do baby teeth fall out?

Sometimes questions are a little more interesting:

  • Do wisdom teeth make you smart?
  • Are teeth good for anything besides eating?

Dr. Meghna Dassani and your Houston dental team can help you out when it comes to dental questions. We want to give kids the right information so they understand the reasons for consistent oral hygiene, which we hope sets a foundation for their future good health.

If your little one’s dental question has you stumped, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Dassani Dentistry
