Your Child's Dental Development
Many parents believe there is little they can do to help their children avoid dental problems. On the contrary, there are lots of things that can be done. Establishing good dietary habits, helping them brush and floss, and encouraging them to use mouthguards during contact sports all help promote healthy teeth.
Plan your child's first visit to the dentist sometime around age two or three. By the age of two, about twenty "baby teeth" should be present. The four lower incisors, which have a "cutting" action, are usually the first baby teeth to appear. They're also the first to be lost when it's time for adult teeth to come in. Count your child's teeth periodically and note when they erupt. This information can help your dentist determine whether the teeth are developing normally.
If your child has teeth not erupting on schedule, or has emotional or physical problems, you may wish to see a pediatric dentist. Check with your regular dentist to see whether a visit to one of these skilled specialists is needed. Care for your child's teeth just as you would for their body.

  1. I agree with this article that there are a lot of things that you can do in order to help children prevent dental problems. The best thing to do is set the example and have them see you taking care of their teeth and they will do as follows. Make sure to also take them in to see a children's dentist so they get used to going in to get their teeth checked and worked on.
