According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), kids should visit a dentist within six months of the first tooth eruption. This is a period of dynamic changes that requires the help and guidance of a professional in providing a clean and healthy mouth. Avoiding tooth decay in baby teeth is an essential stepping stone for providing a proper environment for eruption and development of permanent teeth.
Deciduous teeth (baby teeth) start erupting between the ages of 6-10 months. As they erupt, they provide a surface for pathogenic bacteria to adhere to and build up a biofilm called plaque. The chemicals released from these microorganisms cause the demineralization of enamel and dentin, which leads to cavities. This process is even more pronounced in kids, as their teeth have not yet fully matured.
To avoid these problems, a parent should be well-informed about all the steps they must take. Things like teeth cleaning, proper diet, feeding schedules, among others are at the heart of the battle against early-childhood cavities. Getting the necessary information from a kids dental care professional is a crucial part of oral disease prevention.
With the parents’ help, any child can have healthy teeth. Getting used to going to the dentist should start at an early age and should happen before cavities occur. Ensure the long-term oral health of your children by taking them to a dentist who specializes in kids dental care. They typically use pediatric instruments and are experienced in working with children and charting their dental development.
