Putney area Dentist describes how to take care of your child's teeth and gums

It doesn't take too long after infants have become accustomed to their new world that they may begin to sprout their very first teeth. Sometime between the ages of six months old and one year, parents will notice the eruption of their very first teeth. These teeth are often the bottom two, followed by the top two in natural succession. However, not every child is the same and this may differ—though should not be any reason for concern.

Dr. Etienne Potgeiter of Gentle Dental Putney is committed to providing families with the dental care necessary to care for the teeth and gums of everyone—including young children. He is a dentist in the Putney area who can help take care of your child's teeth and gums over their lifetime and has helped many generations with their oral health care needs.

You may be wondering the best way to care for your child's teeth and gums in-between dental visits. Dr. Eteinne Potgeiter can answer any questions you may have about your child's dental health during their first appointment. At this time, the dentist will perform a rather simple, quick examination of the teeth and gums to check for overall health and any concerns. Then, parents can take the time to ask any and all questions they may have about infant dental care. This may include learning about ways to reduce the risk fo dental caries and how to care for the smile when there are little or no teeth present. It is important to start children off right with proper oral health care habits to make sure they understand the advantages of a healthy smile for life. Reducing the risk of disease and dental caries is the primary benefits of good oral health care from the start—and can provide patients with a lifetime of beautiful smiles!
