Azra Saleem, DDS wants all parents to know that it is important that infants visit the dentist at the time they get in their first baby tooth, or when your child turns one-year old – whichever comes first. Many parents are under the impression that baby teeth do not need to receive dental care, but that is far from the truth. Baby teeth play many roles in a child’s oral health. To start with, baby teeth serve as place holders for the child’s permanent teeth that are to erupt years later. If the baby teeth are not taken care of, and need to come out or are lost too early, the permanent teeth run the risk of coming out in a wrong spot, or crooked, or with some other dental problem. Orthodontic work may be needed later on to correct the problem. Baby teeth also help children chew properly and have healthy speech development. Proper dental care by Dr. Saleem will help ensure correct dental development of your child’s teeth, and avoid dental-related problems as they grow into their adolescent and teen years.
