Baby the Baby Teeth: From the Drool Years through the School Years


Chew on this: Your child’s oral health is important

Sometimes we take our teeth for granted. Why? Maybe it’s because we get a practice set when we’re young. Or maybe it’s because we figure 32 permanent teeth are more than enough when we’re older. Whatever the reason, it's important to remember that as we grow, our dental needs change. Delta Dental wants the best for your teeth. And whether it’s the first set or the second set, we want your mouth to be healthy and the rest of your body to be healthy too. Watch our cool “From Drool to School” video to learn more.

And don’t forget…Brush 2 minutes, 2 times a day for happy and healthy teeth!
