Appropriate Time for Your Child to Begin Seeing a Pediatric Dentist
Knowing when to take them to the dentist can be intimidating, but we have you covered. To ensure your child’s oral health and development are on track, the best course of action is to take them for a visit with the dentist after their first tooth erupts or before they turn one year old. This appointment not only provides you with peace of mind but can also serve as an opportunity to ask any questions that may arise and address any worries concerning your little one’s dental hygiene.
To ensure your little one has healthy teeth, it’s vital to provide appropriate dental care and instill good oral hygiene habits as soon they get their first set of baby teeth (erupting around 6-12 months old).

Quality Dental Care for Growing Smiles - Specialized Dentists for Kids' Teeth!
As your child grows, their primary or baby teeth will begin to appear between the ages of six and 12 months until around three years old. Your little one’s gums may be sensitive during this time so try using a clean finger or cool cloth for some relief. You can even provide them with teething rings for added comfort! Once completed, your child should have 20 tiny white pearls in their smile!
As your little one grows, their primary teeth will come in and out at distinct times throughout childhood. Upon reaching the age of six, they’ll begin to see a shift from temporary teeth to permanent ones which can range up until 21 years old – an adult has 28 pearly whites (32 if wisdom teeth are included).These lifelong adult teeth consist of:
- 8 incisors
- 4 canines
- 8 premolars
- 12 molars, including 4 wisdom teeth
While your little one is expecting their permanent teeth to arrive, taking care of their baby teeth is essential. Remember that once a primary tooth has gone, it’s not coming back – so proper dental hygiene and regular checkups are paramount!
Ready to Start Instilling Good Dental Hygiene Practices
Ensure that your child’s teeth are in pristine condition by inspecting them every couple of weeks. Keep an eye out for any discolouration or lines, as they may be indicators of decay. Additionally, sugary foods and drinks can attack a new tooth; therefore, brush after each meal to prevent these issues from arising. To ensure optimal oral hygiene, we recommend brushing at least four times daily.
Brushing can be an enjoyable experience for your child – it should start as soon as their first tooth appears! Make sure to use a soft-bristled brush and only a pea-sized amount of toothpaste when brushing an infant’s teeth. For children younger than two, please consult with your dentist or healthcare professional before using any fluoride toothpaste. To ensure proper technique, consider reviewing the correct way to brush teeth with your youngster.
Flossing is a major component of excellent oral hygiene and your medical practitioner will inform you when it’s time to floss. If any signs of tooth decay appear, make sure to get in touch with your dentist right away.

Safeguard Your Child's Oral Health: Combat Dental Decay
Tooth decay can occur when the sugar particles left in your mouth become acidic and destroy your teeth’s enamel. Children are particularly vulnerable to this issue since they tend not to have a sound oral hygiene routine. The best way to prevent tooth decay is through proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits, so make sure you get those for yourself and any young ones under your care!
For optimal dental health, we highly recommend that your child visit us for regular cleanings and checkups every six months. Additionally, fluoride treatments should be administered twice yearly to ensure their teeth remain strong. We also suggest tooth sealants which “seal” the deep grooves in your child’s teeth; this prevents decay from forming in difficult-to-reach areas while lasting several years! Furthermore, our team will monitor these sealants during each routine checkup.
