Visiting a dentist as early as 6 months of age can be beneficial to your child’s future oral health and allow for the early detection of problems. At the age of 6-7 years, humans start losing their milk teeth and permanent teeth start emerging.
Milk teeth form the basis of developing permanent teeth, so it is always advisable to start taking care of your baby’s teeth early. Our pediatric dentists offer a wide range of treatment options, expertise and training to care for your child’s oral hygiene.
You should take your child to the pediatric dentist as soon as the first tooth erupts in their mouth, or right around the time your child turns one.
It is mandatory for a child to see a pediatric dentist till the age of 14, because by this time, all their permanent teeth have grown out.
For children, brushing should start with the eruption of the first tooth.
It is extremely important to maintain oral hygiene and keep the mouth clean & clear of germs, irrespective of the age. Mothers can clean the mouth, both upper and lower jaw, of their children with the help of a soft cloth or a silicone brush for babies.
