Your baby’s first tooth is a big milestone! At Gentle Family Dentistry & Orthodontics, we want to help keep your child’s teeth healthy and strong from the very beginning. When your child receives their first set of teeth, it is important to start bringing him or her into our office so that Dr. Sage White and Dr. Trevor White can monitor their growth. If you have questions about primary teeth education in Cedar City, Utah, we invite you to contact us today at 435-586-9991 and visit with our caring dentists.
When your baby starts receiving their first set of teeth, it is called teething. This typically begins when the baby reaches 6 months of age, but it can begin anywhere between 3 and 12 months. The lower front teeth usually come first, followed by the upper front teeth. By the time your child is 3 years old, he or she should have all of their primary teeth.
As your child grows and receives all of their primary teeth, it is important that they receive proper dental care, just like they will with their permanent teeth. Our dentist should be able to determine your baby’s oral growth by the time they reach 6 months. From here on out, our dentists and hygienists can ensure that your child’s teeth remain healthy and strong and that their gums remain free of infection both during and after the teething process. Visiting the dentist early on is also important to diagnose future irregularities and begin planning proper treatments. To learn more about how to care for your child’s teeth during teething, we invite you to call or visit our office today.
