All You Need to Know About Your Baby’s Little Chompers

Posted .

If you have questions about your child’s little teeth, then you’ve come to the right place! Dr. Trace M. Lund and our dental team have some information that could answer your questions and tell you a little more about baby teeth, teething as well as oral hygiene.

When it comes to teething, the first baby tooth will typically grow into place when your child is six months old. The first tooth is usually the middle front tooth on the lower jaw. The rest of the smile will grow into place slowly over time. Once your child is about three years old, they should have a full set of teeth.

When it comes to oral hygiene for your child, you’ll need to care for your child’s little chompers as soon as they pop out of the gums. It’s best to do so by brushing them twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and water. Now, don’t worry about flossing until your child has two teeth next to each other. At this point, it’s best to floss between those teeth regularly. To keep your child’s chompers healthy and strong, make sure they are receiving enough fluoride.

When it comes to your child’s first dental checkup, it’s recommended to bring your child into Price Pediatric Dental six months after their first tooth erupts or by the time they have their first birthday.
