04 Sep His first tooth!
The baby’s first tooth errupts at around 6 months of age. Many times, there are babies whose teeth can errupt at 4 months and others by the first year or a little later. All this is considered normal. Rarely a baby can be born with a tooth in the middle of the upper jaw. This is an extra tooth that the pediatric dentist needsto remove.
Golden rules for dental health:
- We start brushing our teeth when the first tooth errupts (twice a day).
- We do not use the baby bottle to put the child to sleep.
- We visit the pediatric dentist before the end of the first year.
