Importance of Oral Health From Childhood
Oral health care should begin with the very first tooth that grows in a baby’s oral cavity. Even though these teeth will fall out within a few years, baby teeth hold a space for the child’s permanent ones, and the child must have a healthy mouth when those permanent teeth arrive. Without proper care, even baby teeth can decay and cause a lot of problems, including Painful teeth and gums, Difficulty chewing, eating, sleeping, Gum disease, inflammation, and Embarrassment when talking and smiling. Primary teeth, also known as “baby teeth” or “deciduous teeth,” begin to develop beneath the gums after six months of pregnancy. Teeth begin to emerge above the gums approximately six months to one year after birth. Typically, preschool children have a complete set of 20 baby teeth – including four molars on each arch. Children need strong and healthy teeth to chew food properly, speak clearly and have a good-looking smile. Their first teeth also help make sure their permanent or adult teeth will come correctly. It’s important to start good oral care to help protect their teeth for decades to come.
