Children’s Dental Care Timeline
Building a lifetime of healthy dental habits begins at a young age. This includes learning the proper ways to brush, floss and rinse, and adopting good nutrition.
If you’re a parent of an infant, toddler, school-age child or teen, you are responsible for guiding your kids to good oral health to avoid gum disease and complications to wellness as adults. At each stage of development, your child has unique dental needs, whether their baby teeth are coming and going, or they are getting fitted for braces. United Concordia Dental, a Highmark Health company, knows the importance of a healthy mouth at every age and is sharing the Children’s Dental Timeline below so that you can monitor how your little one’s smile is developing.
