Children’s teeth, also known as baby teeth or milk teeth, are important for every child’s development. They will start erupting from around six months of age, and they will have a complete set by the time they are three.
Milk teeth hold the space for adult teeth, and taking good care of them ensures that these adult teeth come in without any problems. Teaching and encouraging good oral health in children will prevent problems like cavities, decay and gum disease, help their confidence levels and reduce speech delay issues.
Unfortunately, most children have an irrational fear of dentists. So, what is the best way to get your kids there without any dramas? You can try making dental visits enjoyable, educating them about dental care through books and songs, setting good examples yourself, and making it a family event.
