The Importance of Baby Teeth
Babies are born with their 20 primary teeth are already in their jawbones and they begin to break through the gums around 6-12 months of age. Most children have their full set of baby teeth by their third birthday. Every child is different, and it is important to get dental care even for these baby teeth. Even though they will fall out eventually and be replaced by the permanent teeth, these baby teeth must be properly cleaned and cared for to ensure the child’s dental well-being. Here at Kopp Dental, we have helped many families learn how about proper baby teeth dental care. Contact us today to set up an appointment and read on to learn more about kid’s dental care!
Why Baby Teeth Matter
Baby teeth may seem of little importance, they are temporary after all, but they are actually very important to the overall dental health and development of your child. They make it possible for your child to chew, speak and smile and these are all things they will do throughout their life- so they need strong baby teeth while they learn! The baby teeth also act as placeholders that keep teeth properly spaced and aligned so the permanent teeth come in straight and in the right place. If the baby teeth are not spaced properly or come in wrong, the adult teeth can follow in their place, and this can make teeth crooked or crowded. That’s why good oral care must start even before the first tooth comes in, and while they may seem of little importance they can help protect the overall health of your child’s mouth for the rest of their lives!
