Pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. Versailles dental clinic in Dubai has the experience and qualifications to care for children teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.
Children begin to get their baby teeth during the first 6 months of life. By age 6 or 7 years, they start to lose their first set of primary teeth, which are replaced by permanent teeth.
Without proper dental care, children face possible oral decays and diseases that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications.
Never neglect primary teeth when they have decays or cavities, thinking they don t need treatment as they will be replaced by the permanent teeth coming. A Primary tooth infection can contaminate the permanent new tooth during its growth inside the jaw, before it erupts on the arch.
In this event the permanent tooth often develops already damaged or with defects.
Today, early childhood dental caries—an infectious disease—is 5 times more common in children than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever also called allergic rhinitis.
