Beginning Dentistry for Children at a Young Age
It is extremely important to start dentistry for children when the first tooth appears.
The primary (baby) teeth begin to erupt at about five to six months of age. By the age of six, they begin to lose their primary teeth. Over the course of several years, their primary teeth are replaced by their permanent teeth.
The earlier children become familiar with going regularly to see the family dentist, they can become acclimated to that environment and will feel more comfortable and will be less apprehensive around the office's friendly staff and dentist.
Without proper dental care, children face possible tooth decay and other diseases that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. Good oral home care habits take time for children to master — and the right child dentist will go a long way in helping children and their parents learn proper home care habits.
