Dental problems can often be compared to other common problems that children face in their daily lives.

Just as the cavity needs to be filled to repair the tire, a cavity in a tooth needs to be filled to prevent further damage. By making these comparisons, parents can help children better understand the importance of maintaining good dental health.
