This post from Ritchie Dental Group in Marble Falls and Brady TX examines eruption charts.
An eruption chart is simply a listing of the different types of teeth in the mouth and when, on average, they come out, or ‘erupt’ from the gums. An eruption chart shows when you can expect children’s teeth to come in and out.
Dentists use these charts to compare the development of their patients’ teeth to the average times in the population.
If you have a toddler who has not yet had their first dental exam, we encourage you to schedule an appointment. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry advises parents to bring their child in for a dental exam before their first birthday.
A beautiful, healthy smile boosts confidence and self-esteem for kids. A healthy mouth equals better overall health and well-being. Maintaining ideal oral health puts children at a lower risk for diabetes and heart disease.
When children develop healthy oral practices, you avoid the need for costly restorative dental work down the road. Strong teeth help kids get proper nutrition.
