Your Child’s Baby Teeth: 3 Things To Remember

One of those moments you wait for excitedly is when those baby teeth show up. You know it’s coming soon but when? While the anticipation can feel fun, it can also cause a bit of worry or frustration for parents. Whether you’re not sure what to expect, you’re comparing your kiddo to another child, etc., we encourage you to remember some important details, so this event can continue to be a milestone you feel happy about.

#1: All Kiddos Are Unique

Waiting for baby teeth is often a little challenging. After all, there’s no specific date those teeth will show up. There are general expectations. Remember that your son and daughter may develop teeth at different times. Your best friend’s child’s teeth may show up before or after your child’s. It’s all okay. When you’re unsure, let us know!

#2: They Usually Begin In The Front

Want to check out some general details regarding your child’s baby teeth eruption schedule? The American Dental Association offers a couple helpful charts. Wondering what you can expect to see first? Usually, the first teeth will be the two front lower teeth (lower central incisors).

#3: If You Have Questions, Ask Us!

Before you start to worry, panic, or begin coming up with your own answers to anything involving your child’s baby teeth, we strongly encourage you to wait and talk with us instead. Give us a call. Come in for a quick checkup.
