Care For Your Child’s Smile

Here are some tips for helping your child take care of their changing mouth.

Children usually start losing their baby teeth around age six. By age twelve, most kids have all their adult teeth until their wisdom teeth begin to erupt in their late teens.

The changes that happen to a child’s mouth over these six critical years require particular care to make sure the adult teeth grow in straight, healthy, and cavity-free. This time is referred to as the mixed dentition stage because your child will have both baby (primary) and adult (permanent) teeth.
