What Is a Pediatric Dentist?

Teeth erupted in the infanthood lay a foundation for a healthy mouth. Normally, the teething starts when a kid is aged 6 months and the child will have the full set of primary teeth by 3 years old. The erupted primary teeth (also known as baby teeth or milk teeth) eventually fall off to provide a way for the permanent teeth. Even though the primary teeth do not last long, they have a massive impact on everyone's oral healthcare. The baby teeth tend to reserve space for the adult teeth, which helps the toddlers learn to chew, eat & speak. Moreover, the jaw bone continues to grow in childhood. Hence a toddler should get right dental care from a pediatric dentist at the early stages of oral development.
