Primary teeth, also known as “baby teeth”, have many purposes.
Baby teeth allow your child to chew food adequately; they help with speech, give your child a confident appearance, as well as save space for their permanent teeth to help guide them into the right place. It is surprising to most parents to find out that the health of their child’s baby teeth affects their permanent teeth. Although baby teeth do eventually fall out, it is important to keep them healthy and cavity free while they are still in your child’s mouth.
Parents often ask “What age should my child see the dentist?” The answer is around 6 months after their first tooth comes in, so usually around their first birthday. However, if you have any questions or concerns before your child is 1, Restore Dental is always happy to help!At Restore Dental we see all children ages 3 and under for FREE examinations and cleanings!
