Eruption Charts: Not As Scary As They Sound

Today the team at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS examines eruption charts.

An eruption chart is simply a listing of the different types of teeth in the mouth and when, typically, they come out, or ‘erupt’ from the gums. An eruption chart tells you when you can expect baby teeth to erupt and fall out.

Dentists use these charts to compare the development of their patients’ teeth to the average times in the population.

The friendly staff here would love to schedule an appointment with you and answer any questions you have about children’s teeth eruption times, dental sealants, fluoride treatments, thumbsucking, and athletic mouthguards.

If you have a toddler who has not yet had their first dental exam, we encourage you to schedule an appointment. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that dental visits should begin before the first birthday.

A beautiful, healthy smile boosts confidence and self-esteem for kids. A healthy mouth equals better overall health and well-being. Maintaining optimal oral health puts children at a lower risk for diabetes and heart disease.

When kids develop healthy oral practices, you avoid the need for costly restorative dental work down the road. Strong teeth help babies get proper nutrition.

We provide experienced, gentle dentistry to our young patients in the Murray area. If you are looking for a children’s dentist, we invite you to schedule a consultation.

We see ourselves as key members of your healthcare team and are dedicated to your physical, mental, and emotional health. At Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, we serve the Murray area with general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup with us today!
