Topical fluoride application at dental clinic will also be helpful if you and your family members are at high risk of developing dental caries. If a water sources in your community has less fluoride content, you should have fluoride application.
Some information about Children’s teeth
Children’s teeth begin forming before they are even born. The first primary or baby teeth to erupt through the gums are the lower central front teeth. These are followed closely by the upper central front teeth which come through around 4 to 6 months after birth. Although all twenty primary teeth have usually appeared by the time the child reaches three years old, the pace and order of eruption varies from child to child.
Permanent teeth start to come through around the age of six. This process continues until approximately age twenty-one.
Some informations to parents
Oral care should begin soon after birth. Gums should be cleaned after each feeding. Gums should be wiped with a clean, damp cloth or gauze pad. You should begin brushing your child’s teeth as soon as they appear. Parents should brush children’s teeth daily with a soft wet toothbrush and a pea sized amount of fluoride toothpaste.
Schedule a dental visit between 6-12 months of age.
When children are very young it is necessary to supervise their brushing to ensure proper brushing habits are adopted.
