Everything You Need to Know About Baby Teeth

Posted on: January 29th, 2019 | Categories: Uncategorized

Parenthood is a challenge of its own, but having a teething baby presents a whole other set of difficulties. We know that oral health for your little one is important, so here is a guide for you to follow regarding your baby’s first set of teeth.

Your child is born with their 20 primary teeth present in their jaw. Between 6 months and 1 year, those teeth will start to erupt. When the teeth emerge, many babies will experience tender and sore gums. You can soothe these sore gums by using a wet gauze pad or a small, cool spoon to help relieve the irritation and pain that your baby feels.

Baby teeth are important because they help children chew, speak, and they also hold the space for permanent teeth to come in. If a baby tooth is lost too early on, then teeth can shift and make it difficult for adult teeth to come in. The best way to prevent this from happening is to start taking your child to the dentist regularly. Dentists recommend that you start taking your child to the dentist six months after the eruption of their first tooth.

Talk to your dentist about ways to help your child with teething, and the best practices surrounding baby teeth.
