What to Expect from Kids’ Tooth Development
Avoiding Missteps with Tooth Development
If your child’s tooth development doesn’t follow this chart to the letter, don’t panic. The best thing to do in these cases is check in with their dentist. If you’re struggling to pick a dentist for your child, it can be a good idea to talk to their pediatrician and ask about someone they’d recommend for your child’s needs.
Every kid is different – some are going to feel comfortable at the dentist’s office, or even excited about visiting! Others will fight tooth and nail to put off their appointments, doing everything short of attaching themselves to the car seat. No matter how comfortable or anxious your child is, we can help you encourage them toward a healthy attitude toward dentistry.
Why Dental Health is Crucial During Childhood
While baby teeth do fall out, they’re still incredibly important. These teeth guide the development of the permanent teeth. Healthy primary teeth help ensure healthy adult teeth. And cavities or other dental problems can cause self-consciousness and difficulties socializing for kids. So it’s always best to build great health from the start.
