FAQ about Baby Teeth

Posted on 3/21/2022 by Spektor Dental
FAQ about Baby TeethBaby teeth come as soon as the baby gets to the age of about six months. This can be different depending on the baby since others get to the age of 18 months. The teeth need proper oral care despite the fact that they will come out eventually. Our dental team will guide you on how to take care of baby teeth.

When does the first baby tooth fall out

The first tooth appears in many babies around the age of six months, but it can appear as late as a year old. As a result, don't be alarmed if you don't see any tooth protruding after six months. Ensure that as soon as the first tooth comes out you visit the dentist immediately. The dentist will teach you ways of taking care of baby teeth before they get to the point of falling out.

Is Fluoride Safe for Baby Teeth

Apply a small amount of fluoride to your child's baby teeth for strong, healthy teeth. Our dentists recommend a pea-sized amount that will not harm the sensitive teeth.

Essential for jaw development and speech

Baby teeth are essential for your baby's jaw development and how he or she speaks. As a result, take the necessary precautions to ensure proper tooth growth. You need to teach and encourage the baby to brush the teeth to prevent formation of cavities and tooth decay

Begin dental visits as soon as possible

As soon as your child's first tooth appears, bring him or her to the clinic for a dental checkup. This will allow our dentist to begin monitoring the growth and development of your child's teeth at a young age, ensuring the prevention of common dental problems. Make an appointment with our experts, who will advise you on everything you need to know about your child's baby teeth.
