Pediatric Questions?

  • When will my baby start getting teeth?
  • What age should my child start coming to the dentist?
  • What age do children start losing baby teeth?
  • What's the big deal with baby teeth they will lose anyway?
  • What can I do to help my child prevent cavaties?
Most children will end up with 20 Primary (Baby) Teeth, which will begin erupting around 6 months of age. Primary teeth will continue to erupt throughout the first 2-3 years of a child's life.
It is recommended that children visit the dentist within 6 months of their first primary tooth appearing, or around their first birthday.

Starting dental visits early allows us to chart your child's growth and development, but more importantly, getting your child comfortable at the dental office.

Every child develops at their own pace, but children will start losing their primary (baby) teeth at age 5-7 years. Children will continue to lose teeth throughout childhood until age 10-13 years.
Primary (baby) teeth play a crutial role in the proper development of your child. Baby teeth allow your child to properly chew, speak, and smile.

If baby teeth have decay, it is important to get them fixed as tooth decay can lead to tooth loss and potentially fatal infections.

The best way to prevent tooth decay is creating healthy habits at home. Brushing your child's teeth should begin as soon as they get their first tooth, twice daily.

Children younger than 3 years should use a smear of flouride toothpaste. Children 3-6 years should use a pea size amount of flouride toothpaste. Adult supervision should be present until the child can effectively tie their own shoes.

Brushing accompanied with a healthy diet and regular check ups will ensure your child a healthy, pain free mouth.
