Dr. Nordstrom recommends that a child see the dentist at about 1 year of age. Yes, that might seem very young! The reason for this is that the more children are exposed to the dentist, the happier they are coming back! The earlier we see the child the more we can do to help that child progress cavity-free and cavity-free children have a much lower chance of being scared of the dentist as they grow up. This sets your child up for a happy and healthy mouth throughout their entire lives.
Yes, baby teeth fall out! Unfortunately, baby teeth can get just as infected as adult teeth. In children, abscesses can be life-threatening. Additionally, baby teeth hold the space for the adult teeth and allow the adult teeth to erupt into the mouth in the correct order. Without them, adult teeth erupt out of position leading to considerable crowding and likely the need for childhood braces.
