When should I bring my child to the dentist?
A young child should come in for an initial dental care visit after the first primary tooth has erupted, or at least by their first birthday. Early visits to our family dental office familiarize your child with the environment and the experience of having their teeth examined and cleaned. Our team works with growing children to educate them on the value of their oral health and how to maintain it, providing age-appropriate hygiene advice.
Are baby teeth important?
Your child’s baby, or primary teeth, play several important roles in their overall health and development. Just because they fall out when their primary teeth come in does not mean they take less importance.
- Speech development: the primary teeth play a significant role in the development of your child’s speech. If teeth are damaged or lost this can impact your child’s ability to develop normal speech patterns as they grow.
- Good nutrition: stable baby teeth allow your child to easily eat a variety of foods, supporting good nutrition.
- Placeholders: primary teeth are the placeholders for permanent teeth. Keeping them healthy and in place allows for the normal, healthy development of the permanent teeth and your child’s smile.
