Why is Pediatric Dentistry Important?

  • The first set of teeth that erupt into the oral cavity is known as milk teeth or primary teeth. They start flashing into the oral cavity at six months of age. At the age of 6-7 years, kids begin to lose their primary teeth. In that place, permanent teeth erupt. Milk teeth form the basis of developing permanent teeth. Improper maintenance can cause problems for a lifetime, so it is essential to take care of your child's teeth from an early age.
  • A single dentist from childhood to adolescence helps to treat you right from the beginning.
