Family dentists can help people of all ages, including children, but you may want to look into children's dentistry to make sure your child gets the care he or she needs. This specialty takes care of children from birth to adolescence, even using sedation dentistry on those who need it. At Monarch Dentistry in Stoney Creek at 35 Upper Centennial Pkwy, we try to give your children great care while building a good relationship with them so that they keep coming back for sessions as they get older.
Baby Teeth Between six and twelve months, the main teeth, which are also called baby teeth, start to come in. Kids should go to the dentist for the first time within six months of getting their first tooth, or by the age of one. The kids teeth will keep coming in until the kid is about three years old. There will be a total of 20 primary teeth, which will start to fall out around age 6 and be replaced by permanent teeth.
Good Dental Practices
You should watch your child brush their teeth until you are sure they can do it on their own without taking the toothpaste. Fluoride is not good for kids; teeth unless their doctor tells them to use it. Every six months, you should make an appointment to have your teeth cleaned and checked by your kids dentist. If your child plays sports, you should get him or her a sports guard. If you live in Stoney Creek and want good dental care for your kids, come see us at Monarch Dentistry.
