The Importance of Baby Teeth

Primary teeth (most commonly known as baby teeth) are the set of teeth that children get to prepare their mouths for adult teeth. Baby teeth help provide children with proper speech development, chewing, and saves space in the jaw for adult teeth. We all know that children develop at different rates, but you will typically begin to notice your child’s first tooth erupt during the first 6 months to a year of life. They will typically begin to lose these teeth by age 6 or 7, and they will start to be replaced by adult teeth.

The American Dental Association has recommended that children see the dentist by their first birthday, or by the eruption of their first tooth. It’s very important to take proper care of baby teeth, as this will help to set a healthy foundation for oral hygiene for the rest of your child’s life. If you neglect this important part of your child’s overall health, he or she can possibly develop dental health issues such as gum disease or tooth decay. These conditions can cause problems for the rest of your child’s life.
