What to Expect With Young Children
Children typically starting getting their baby teeth (primary teeth) at around six months, and this continues until they are around three years old. We recommend teething rings to help alleviate the discomfort they may feel during this time. All in all, you can expect your child to have a total of 20 teeth.
At around age six, children start losing their primary teeth. This continues for many years, until they get their full set of 28 permanent teeth (not including wisdom teeth).
When to Book Your First Appointment
We take appointments for children who are at least 7 years old.
Ongoing Appointments for Children
We understand that getting children to the dentist can be an arduous task. However, children are much more likely than adults to have poor brushing habits and develop cavities. So we recommend bringing them in every six months for an exam and cleaning, just like adults.
We understand finding the right dentist for your family can be challenging. Please feel to reach out to us with any questions you may have at (850) 492-7647.
