Most people know that pediatric means “for children.” If children don’t have any teeth or if they have only “baby teeth” that will fall out, what kind of special care do they need? The fact is, that if a child’s baby teeth are damaged or hurt, that may affect the way the adult teeth grow in. Good dental care starts long before children are adolescents. Special care for children by NYC dentists who are qualified is essential, starting from when the child is an infant.
Children begin to get their baby teeth when they are about 6 to 7 months old. Then they lose their “baby teeth” and their second set (permanent) teeth begin to grow in. But this first set of teeth is important, and even very young children may face oral decay and disease if they don’t have proper pediatric dental care. This can cause a lifetime of pain and dental complications. These days, early childhood cavities are even more common in children than asthma and hay fever.
*Years ago fluoride was introduced into most towns’ water systems and was considered a great improvement in helping to prevent cavities. But not all towns have fluoride in their water. Some dentists believe that supplemental fluoride treatments are helpful.
Whether your child has ever seen a dentist and whether there seem to be tooth or mouth problems, it is never too early to start your child on a lifetime of good dental care.
