Healthy teeth for your children

We at “DRPDC” are very concern about children’s teeth. We encourage the fact that a child from a very early age must be taught the proper and procedure and benefits of oral hygiene. Children who are well aware of oral hygiene tend to have a healthy set of teeth for a very long-term. We at “DRPDC” understand that most of the people are not aware of the fact regarding the dental growth process of their children. We provide all the information required for the proper dental growth chart of children.

Babies are born with primary or baby teeth hidden beneath the gum surface and do not appear on the surface until several months. Normally between the ages of 6 to 10 months, baby’s first teeth begin to break out from the gums. Usually these are the two bottom central incisors, i.e. the two lower front teeth.  After that, the four front teeth emerge. Next all the other teeth slowly begin to fill in, usually in pairs, on each side of the upper and lower jaw, until all the 20 teeth is filled in. These 20 teeth are equally divided between lower and upper jaw, i.e. 10 teeth for each jaw), and they come in by the time the child is around 3 years old. Mainly, this growth starts with the central incisor followed by lateral incisor, then canine teeth and lastly first and second molar filled in. The complete set of primary teeth remains until around 6 to 7 years of age. After this, another major change takes place with the arrival of permanent teeth, preceded by the falling of baby teeth.

We believe that normally around the age of 6 first permanent or adult teeth begin to appear. They start with the first molars and lower front teeth. These are very important teeth and also the whole procedure helps to give a proper shape to the lower part of your child’s face. Also, it affects the position of your child’s other permanent teeth. Thus, your child’s baby teeth will start to fall soon. Around the age of 12, the full set of permanent teeth replaces the baby teeth.  The growth of teeth usually follows a distinctive pattern where central incisor and lateral incisor are first to fill in followed by first premolar, second premolar, first molar, second molar and lastly the third molar also known as wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth or the third molar usually appear between the ages of 17 to 21 years, but in some cases these it can appear some years later than that too. Also, vary often wisdom teeth become impacted and extraction is required.
