Baby teeth come in at different times for each child. It usually happens within the first six months, but it can take 8 months or more for some babies.
The first teeth to come in are most commonly the front lower teeth. As teething begins, the teeth coming through the gums will cause pain for the baby. Massage and cold applications will help ease some of the pain.
At age 7 to 8, they start losing their first set of teeth, which are eventually replaced by permanent teeth. Tooth decay and disease could develop without proper oral hygiene.
Pediatric dentists specialize in babies through teens.
The perfect age for the first dentist visit is around 1 year. This enables us to begin a prevention program to prevent cavities and other dental problems. However, if you suspect a problem before the first birthday, you should bring them to the office before 1 year.
Regular checkups and cleanings early in a child’s development will decrease the fear of dentists later in life. Since small cavities can develop on teeth that look clean, before decay is visible to the human eye, regular checkups are extremely important for all ages. Every six months is recommended.
