|When Should My Child First Been Seen
Here at Rymal Square Family Dentists, we love to see children of all ages. The best time to bring a child in is between 3 or 4 yrs. depending on whether you think you child will be ready to sit through an appointment. It is important to be looking in your child’s mouth on a regular basis, to check for any tooth decay at an early stage. If you spot any concerns it is important that your child be seen by a dentist as soon as possible, don’t delay treatment because of age. Let a dentist decide what treatment can wait and what treatment needs to be taken care of immediately.
Why Do Baby Teeth Need To Be Filled?
Finally, baby teeth are essential for holding the spaces open so that the adult teeth can come into the correct position when they are finally developed enough to erupt. Decay if left in a baby tooth could spread to the adult tooth causing the adult tooth to grow in with decay already present.
