We offer following dental services for children:
The Advanced Dental Care Center is dedicated to encouraging as many children as we can reach, to adopt good habits in dental hygiene. To this end, we offer reduced fee dental services to underprivileged children. We do our utmost to create an atmosphere of positive reinforcement making the children as comfortable as possible throughout their visit. Although the center would like to offer its services as broadly as possible, it is necessary to establish eligibility guidelines pertaining to prospective patients.
Children's teeth begin forming before they are even born. The first primary, or baby teeth, to erupt through the gums are the lower central incisors. These are followed closely by the upper central incisors which come through around four months after birth. Although all twenty primary teeth have usually appeared by the time the child reaches three years old, the pace and order of eruption varies from child to child.
Oral care should begin soon after birth. Gums should be cleaned after each feeding. You should begin brushing your child's teeth as soon as they appear. Permanent teeth start to come through around the age of six. This begins with the first molars and lower central incisors. This process continues until approximately age twenty-one.
Adults have twenty-eight permanent teeth, or up to thirty-two including the third molars (wisdom teeth).
