When should my youngster go to the dentist for the first time?
When their first tooth appears or by their first birthday, children should visit a dentist. The majority of children’s primary teeth begin to erupt on the bottom gums in the lower jaw at around six months of age. Children, like adults, should get routine dental exams twice a year after their initial appointment.
Why do I need to take my child’s baby teeth to the dentist?
Even while baby teeth will eventually fall out, maintaining good oral hygiene is still important since it affects how well your child’s gums and permanent teeth develop.
Baby teeth teach youngsters to chew food properly, support speech development, and create space for their permanent teeth to erupt. It is very important to keep baby teeth until they are lost naturally. Children are more likely to develop lifelong, healthy habits if they learn how to properly take care of their teeth at a young age.
For the optimal development of bones, gums, and teeth, a balanced diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, complete grains, and lean sources of protein is necessary. Limit sugars and starches as well because they might contribute to tooth decay.
