The dental health of a child is the responsibility of the parent. It is very important to make sure that your child receives proper oral care both at home and at the dentist. This will later on determine your child’s attitude towards their oral health as an adult.
The first visit to the dentist should be as early as when your child has the complete set of primary teeth (around 3 years of age). This should be the case weather or not there is apparent need for the visit, in order to focus on the preventive aspect of dental care and to make your child not fearful of the dentist.
Maintaining the health of your child’s primary teeth is of utmost importance. Children may not be able to communicate dental pain. Untimely loss of primary teeth may have very adverse effects on the development of the permanent teeth and jaw bones, which may cause deformities in jaw structure and tooth alignment, rendering an orthodontic treatment necessary (braces).
