Although baby teeth are temporary, and they will fall out around age 6, baby teeth still need to be taken care of. The foremost reason for this is that baby teeth will guide your kid’s permanent teeth into place.
Most parents bring their kids to a kids dentist for the first time around age two. But did you know that as soon as your kid shows their first tooth it is recommended to schedule their first appointment with a children’s dentist? Your kid’s dentist will not only check the health of their teeth as they continue to grow in, but they’ll check the health of their gums, too.
Your child’s dentist can also help you understand how to brush your kid’s teeth properly and advise you on the right toothpaste to use, how frequently to brush, and how much toothpaste to use.
