Let’s start with why is it important for your child to visit a dentist at an early age. By early age we mean as soon as the first teeth erupts. Being the most trusted and best dentist in Delhi, Dr. Gargi Kandhari suggests so because it allows the dentist to thoroughly check the development of the child’s mouth if there are any problems, early detection can prevent it from becoming severe. You will be surprised to know how helpful this can be in preventing conditions like baby bottle caries, prolonged thumb sucking, teething problems and rampant or repeated caries can be prevented. Also, having healthy milk teeth will ensure healthy permanent teeth because healthy milk teeth mean appropriate shape and spacing of teeth to formulate a perfect jaw shape. Any infection in the milk teeth can severely affect the underlying permanent tooth bud, thereby causing them to erupt abnormally and congenital enamel defects.
Children are a gift from God and we know how they mean the world to you. We at Kandhari’s skin and dental clinic do not treat children as mere patients as we understand how most of them are scared to visit a doctor.
