Your child’s first teeth begin to emerge around six months of age, and it is then that they should have their first visit with the dentist. The bottom and top central front teeth, called incisors, are typically the first teeth to show up. Due to this common timeframe for emerging teeth, the American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that all children have their first dental checkup by age one. Dr. Devan Dalla, our seasoned pediatric dentist at DNTL Hub in Galt, CA, offers specialized care for children, beginning with their first visit by age one and subsequent checkups between birth to two years of age.

Although these early primary teeth are temporary and will fall out as your child grows, they have an important role to fill in the early years. Toddlers usually receive most of these teeth by the time they reach age two, and almost always by age three. They are important for:

  • Guiding the permanent teeth into the correct position
  • Correct facial development
  • Eating healthy foods
  • Proper speech development
