What to be prepared for with your Children’s Teeth in London SE1

12 / 06 / 2013

In the first 18 years of a child’s life in London SE1, their teeth will go through some very radical changes as they grow up and as a doting parent, it is down to you to not only nurse them through these changes, but to finance any treatment that they will require, so you better be prepared. Even as a baby is growing in the womb, so are their teeth; in rare cases, some babies are born with their teeth showing. Normally though, a baby will start to teethe after about 8 months and when they break through, you will have to be vigilant about tooth decay and infection, which is the time when a paediatrician should be on the scene to help out. As the child grows, then a dentist should be brought on board too, for the next big moment in a child’s life is when the milk teeth fall out and the secondary ones come through. For lucky kids, these will grow straight and present no problem, but if they don’t, orthodontic treatment will be required as the child moves into its teens in order to straighten the teeth out. Finally, as a child moves into adulthood, they will be confronted with wisdom teeth. Of course during all this time, kids love a chocolate or two and often fail to clean their teeth correctly after eating, meaning that it is common for children to have fillings as they grow up.
