Baby teeth are exciting for most parents, and their children, each child develops baby teeth differently. Most people assume that because they are not permanent they do not need dental care. But theta is where they go wrong. The baby teeth need caring like that of permanent teeth. Our dentist will help you know about the baby's teeth.
Ensure you floss and brush
Even though they will eventually fall out baby teeth need care like permanent teeth. For the baby's first tooth take a tooth to wipe it with a clean piece of cloth. It can be painful to brush your teeth at this age. As the child grows you can introduce a soft toothbrush and use a smear of fluoride toothpaste. The pediatric dentist will guide you on the best toothpaste for your baby. During the growth of the child, the mouth will change and the dentist will help in navigating through these changes.
Baby teeth can impact the development of permanent teeth
If the baby teeth fall out the permanent teeth fill into that space. This can sometimes lead to crowding teeth and in some cases crooked adult teeth. If you have infections of the mouth this prevents adult teeth from coming out and causes discoloration, staining, and malformations of the teeth. Regular dental visits will help identify how the teeth of your child are coming up.
Baby teeth need professional care
Many parents do not know that the baby's teeth need professional care. When the first tooth appears ensure that you go to the pediatric dentist. The dentist will guide you on changes that are likely to occur in the mouth as the child grows. We want you and your child to have the best experience bring the child to see our dentist as soon as the first tooth appears.
