Pediatric Dentistry Frequently Asked Questions:
Why Should I Choose a Salem Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric dentist is the best qualified to provide the highest standard of care for your child. Children of different ages require different behavioral approaches and have specific needs according to their stage of dental development.
Salem Pediatric dentists, like Dr. Quynh Bui, enter into an additional two-year residency program after completion of dental school. Dr. Bui’s pediatric specialty focuses on oral health care for patients specifically from the age of 6 months to 18 years. By choosing a pediatric dentist, you are building the best dental care foundation for your child.
When Should My Child Have Their First Dental Visit?
When Will My Baby’s First Teeth Appear?
Some babies begin getting teeth earlier or later than others. Additionally, teething (when baby or primary teeth first break through the gums) times can vary with each child. Typically, the first baby teeth to erupt will be the lower front (anterior) teeth, which commonly appear between 6 to 8 months of age.
What Should I Do if My Child Still Has Baby Teeth?
Most common reasons for why your child may still have their baby teeth:
- The roots of the baby teeth do not resorb, so permanent teeth must grow adjacent to them.
- The permanent teeth do not have enough space to erupt.
Recommendations for parents/caregivers:
Assess the mobility of the child’s baby teeth. If a tooth is loose and not otherwise causing any pain or discomfort, have the child wiggle the tooth daily. Using this bit of manipulation, the tooth should fall out within a couple of weeks. If the tooth still has no mobility and has not loosened at all after a couple of weeks, or it is causing the child discomfort, then we suggest making an appointment to perform an evaluation and determine whether it is necessary to extract the baby tooth.
