“When Should I Worry?”

Some parents begin to worry when their child doesn’t start teething as soon as other babies. Most doctors and dentists agree that if your child hasn’t begun by 12 months you should visit with us about it. We’ll examine your child’s mouth and make sure the teeth are developing correctly and determine if further treatment is needed. Some children are simply late bloomers. However, it is best to err on the side of caution and have us take a look. If you have any questions about your baby’s teeth contact us! We would love to visit with you.

As always, thanks for the trust you place in our practice.
