New-born babies start teething as soon as they get six months old. Their first set of primary ‘milk’ teeth are the foundation of healthy teeth structure and oral hygiene as adults. Milk teeth eventually start falling off at the age of 6-7 years to develop a permanent set of teeth. However, these milk teeth laid the foundation for adulthood and require proper care from professionals.
Pediatric dentists help parents with young children with their oral health care needs from a very early age. They help them develop good oral habits to prevent dental conditions and problems after developing their permanent set of teeth. Most parents don’t take much attention to the oral health of their children during this stage, which is not a good sign for years to come. Every parent must take their child to professional dentists for routine check-ups as soon as they start teething to maintain the proper oral habits from the beginning.
At College Street Dental, we provide a complete dental care solution for your child for proper care to prevent dental conditions that could last a lifetime. We are specialized in dentistry that caters to children’s special dental needs with gentle care. We focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of early dental conditions to help your kids maintain and develop healthy mouth, teeth, and gums with lifelong good oral habits.
Who should see a Pediatric Dentist?
Families with young children and adolescents must see a pediatric dentist receive regular dental care throughout childhood and teenage. Proper dental care should begin no later than one year of your child and routine dental check-ups should be done every six months or as recommended by your pediatric dentist. It is the best way to prevent gum diseases, cavities, and other dental conditions. The oral habit and dental conditions of your child determine how often he or she needs professional dental care.
