Caring for your Child’s Teeth
Typically, children begin teething between the ages of 6-12 months old. Their teeth will continue to erupt until about age 3. By then you should expect your child to have about 20 primary teeth. Your child will begin to lose their primary teeth at various times throughout their childhood and by age 6 their permanent teeth will begin to erupt.
It is recommended that your child begin seeing a dentist by the age of 1. It is important for a dentist to monitor all the various changes happening as they age. Making sure you child’s teeth development is normal and intervening when a problem arises can save them from future treatment and can save you thousands of dollars in complex treatments.
Just like you, your child should visit our Bayside, NY dentist office every six months to maintain proper oral health. At every visit, your child will receive a dental cleaning and a thorough examination. They will be screened for various problems such as tooth decay, gum disease and overall oral development. Our dentists will also do an orthodontic screening to see if early intervention may be necessary.
