As soon as the first tooth appears in your child’s mouth – it is already time to take care of the baby’ s oral health.
Milk teeth are very important for a child’s digestive system, normal formation of facial and jaw system. There are 20 milk teeth and they are all very important. The last teeth change in to permanent ones at the age of 15.
Until this time, teeth must guarantee a normal chewing function and the place for permanent teeth. It is necessary to take all the preventive measures to maintain healthy primary teeth by the time they drop.
First visit to the dentist
Your child’s first visit to the dentist should happen before the first birthday – six months later after the first tooth appears. Children’s visit to the dentist at the youngest age as possible is the best prevention to avoid problems such as dental caries/decay.
The dentist will teach and properly explain how to correctly clean and take care of your child’s teeth and which toothpaste is the best for your child.
The sooner you take your child to the dentist, the better habits of good oral care he will get and will also reduce the number of visits to the dentist in future.
