When your baby is born, his or her first set of teeth(babyteeth) are already formed under the surface of their gums. These teeth will begin to push through their
gums around 6 months old. Babyteeth are important for eating, talking and smiling. They also “hold the space” for adult teeth. It is important to implement good
oral health habits as soon as possible with children. Here are some guidelines to help you do this:
Begin by gently cleaning your child’s mouth and gums with a soft cloth, before they even have any teeth. This will keep their gums clean and it will
also get them used to having something in their mouth cleaning their teeth as the teeth start to come in. Do not allow your child to develop habits
of going to sleep with a bottle or sippy cup, as this often starts a cycle of decay early in your child’s teeth.
This is a good time to introduce your child to the dentist. An easy way to do this in a fun, non-threatening way is to bring them with you to your
own routine check up and cleaning. Your child can watch you and the dentist interact. They will see the dentist looking in your mouth, cleaning your
teeth, etc. If your child is comfortable, the dentist could have a quick look in their mouth while they sit on your lap in the dental chair. Doing
this a few times with you will help your child understand that the dentist is not “scary”. Also, at this age, your child should begin brushing their
teeth twice a day with a child-sized, soft bristle toothbrush. You will want to be involved with this process, making sure the teeth are brushed
thoroughly. Also, you will want to teach your child to spit the toothpaste out and not allow them to swallow it.
Children should be having a dental exam and cleaning twice a year by this age. Bitewing x-rays, which allow the dentist to detect cavities in
individual teeth, are recommended once a year. A panoramic x-ray which allows the dentist to see an x-ray of your child’s entire mouth, including the
developing adult teeth, should be taken once every 2-3 years. Sealants will be recommended as molars start growing in. The dentist will begin to
evaluate for orthodontic(braces) needs during this age as well.
Children should continue to see dentist twice a year for routine exams. Sealants will be recommended as second molars begin to emerge. Orthodontics
are usually started during this time period as well. Continue to encourage good oral hygiene at this time, brushing and flossing everyday.
Children should continue with routine exams and cleanings every 6 months. Wisdom teeth will be addressed toward the end of this age range, evaluating
whether they need to be removed or not. Also, it is important to continue teaching and encouraging good oral hygiene through this and all stages of
