Milk teeth create the foundation for the development of the adult teeth, the premise that milk teeth do not require as much attention as adult teeth is therefore, wrong and unfounded. The amount of time dedicated to dental care during our childhood is reflected later on in the condition of our adult teeth. Teeth cavities and decay strike children’s milk teeth generally because of a lack of hygiene, but more importantly, the biggest enemy to a child’s first set of teeth is sugar consumption. Long periods of a babies’ dummy sucking, bottle drinking or thumb-sucking can also lead to an uneven development of the jaw, with an unintended consequence of uneven growth and position of teeth. It may also cause negative effects in the future of an orthodontic nature.
The best time for children to visit their dentist is when the milk teeth first begin to break through the skin of the gums. A child’s fear of the dentists can be dramatically diminished by early contact with a dentist. It is also important at our clinic that a child’s first dental visit be simply an introduction and not a treatment that may cause any traumatic experience. We approach each and every child individually, because we know that every child is unique and that everyone has specific needs. We also strive to be sensitive of a child’s development and approach each and every case with the utmost attention and care.
