Age 4-9 Dental Visit

Age 4 Dental Visit

Shortly after age 4, the jaw and facial bones of the child begin to grow, creating spaces between the primary teeth. This is a perfectly natural growth process that provides the necessary space for the larger permanent teeth to emerge.

Age 5 Dental Visit

Get ready for the lower first ADULT tooth to emerge!!  You may notice a little raised mound of gum tissue behind the primary 2nd molar.  This will be called the 1st adult molar.

Age 6-9 Dental Visit

After age 6,  a mixture of both primary teeth and permanent teeth reside in the mouth.  At age 6, the first molar and/or the lower incisors should be present.  I like to tell children these "adult" teeth have to last them for a hundred years.  🙂
