When treating your teeth Dr. Wadhwa and her staff want to be sure they are working with healthy teeth and developing healthy habits start at a young age. As one of NJ’s Favorite Kids’ Doc Dr. Wadhwa cares tremendously about the oral health of children.
Did you know that the baby teeth that appear in the first 3 years of a child's life have been there since birth, in the baby’s jawbones? Those baby teeth are key for chewing, speaking and appearance. They also hold space in the jaws for upcoming adult teeth. Even though they fall out, baby teeth are important and you need to take good care of them.
