Why are milk teeth so important?

Most parents have a misconception that milk teeth will fall off and permanent teeth will come on their own. All milk teeth have different ages to erupt & fall off & all permanent teeth have different ages to erupt. Even though primary (milk) teeth eventually fall out, they do serve a very important function. Besides helping in chewing, speech and good looks. Milk teeth reserve space for permanent teeth, so if a tooth is lost too early, new teeth could grow crooked. If the milk teeth are well looked after, then it is more likely that the permanent teeth will grow in their correct position. There are many ways to help prevent early decay, beginning with regular checkups. But if a cavity does develop in a milk tooth, be sure to have it filled.

When should I make my child’s first dental appointment?

When your child is about a year old, it’s time he or she sees Pediatric Dentist Dr. Dimple Arora . Early visits can prevent minor problems from becoming major ones, and even though you are checking your child’s teeth, you may not recognize a problem. Don’t wait until there is a decayed or injured tooth to introduce your child to a dentist . Make the first visit a positive one.
