Is My Child’s Tooth Development On Track?
As with every individual, personal development can vary. But this infographic will help you monitor general progress, and give your child the care they need every step of the way. Remember: you should start scheduling dental exams by your child’s first birthday. This may seem a little early, but it’s necessary for us to be able to check in on tooth development.
Making Sure Your Kids Grow Healthy Teeth
Contrary to what some might think, the development and maintenance of healthy baby teeth is vital. Although it seems like those teeth aren’t necessary, as they’ll fall out before the permanent teeth erupt, their development guides the growth of the permanent teeth. If they remain cavity-free, your kids have a better chance of healthy, beautiful smiles.
Your kids depend on you for healthy groceries and habits that will help them avoid tooth decay. And the longer you can put off their first cavities, the better – this will help them avoid forming dental anxiety. We all want to feel good in the dentist’s office!
