Why is kids dentistry important ?

Humans start teething when they are as young as 6 months old and develop their set of primary ‘milk’ teeth. At the age of 6-7 years, humans start losing their milk teeth and the permanent set of teeth start emerging. Because the milk teeth will eventually fall off, some parents tend to ignore taking their child to a dentist.
In recent years the cases of caries in children have grown manifold.

When should a child first visit the dentist ?

According to American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry the child should be brought to the dentist when he turns 1 year old. By that time the first teeth comes and the dentist can discuss ways of keeping oral hygiene.
A dentist can guide the parents about diet, tooth eruption, finger habits, fluoride etc,children milk teeth form the basis of developing permanent teeth. If proper care is not taken the problems can emerge which will last a lifetime.

How important are baby teeth ?

Baby teeth are not permanent but they are very important. They help the child to crew food, smile properly and speak clearly. Baby teeth hold the space for permanent teeth.
If child looses teeth at an early age because of decay/ damage the nearby teeth can encroach that free space which can result in misplaced/crooked permanent teeth.This includes setting Oral Hygiene routine and regular visits to pediatric dentist.

How many visits are recommended ?
