Infant dentistry for lifetime of healthy teeth

The first baby teeth are very special. Learning to care for your baby’s teeth and dental health can prevent or reduce tooth decay in infants and children as they grow up. At LuxDen Kids, our objective is to help your child develop a positive attitude towards dentistry and oral health care that lasts for years.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry along with the American Academy of Pediatrics encourages parents and caregivers to establish a dental home before their child turns 1 or by their first birthday. It may seem too early but the fact is dental decay can begin as soon as a child’s first tooth arrives. If left untreated, it can have serious implications on your baby’s long term health and wellness and also impact the permanent tooth below.

Are my child’s infant teeth that important?

Yes. Baby teeth are important. As the teeth grow in, they help your child learn to speak as well as eat solid foods. The baby teeth also pave way for permanent teeth in later years. As a parent, you must remember that your child’s oral health is about taking care of teeth and surrounding soft tissue structures.

When should I start preventative dentistry for my baby?

Preventative dentistry begins during pregnancy, as a mother's diet contributes to the development of primary teeth in the womb. After birth, it is crucial for parents to cleanse the baby’s gums and gently brush emerging teeth. Taking your baby to a pediatric dentist for a preventive care exam around their first birthday or when the first tooth appears is essential.

Why should I take my baby to the dentist so early?

Early care helps to prevent and manage common pediatric oral diseases and conditions while fostering a friendly relationship between the dentist and the baby. This initial visit will get your child accustomed to visiting the dentist and taking care of their primary teeth will set them on a path of good dental health.

What to expect during my baby’s first visit to the dentist?

The well-baby visit, or the first dental visit, involves the pediatric dentist showing parents how to care for a young child’s mouth, reviewing developmental milestones, and discussing the importance of good care and nutrition. The dentist examines the baby’s mouth, providing insights into preventing early tooth decay, cavities, and injuries for healthy, strong teeth.

When will my baby start getting teeth?

The process of baby teeth coming through gums into the mouth varies. While some babies get their teeth early, others get them late. Usually the first baby teeth appear on the lower front gums and start erupting between the ages of 6 – 8 months.
