Tooth Development

from Primary to Permanent teeth

The first set of teeth, called primary teeth (or milk teeth), are essential to growing because they aid in clear speech development and the ability to eat and chew. In addition, they hold the place in the bone structure of the jaw for permanent teeth placement.

The health of these teeth are directly related to the health of permanent teeth and good health practices on primary teeth reduce the need for future orthodontic needs.

As soon as baby’s first teeth emerge they should be cleaned at least once a day with a baby’s toothbrush. Around age 2, fluoride toothpaste should be introduced as daily prevention from tooth decay.
