Milk teeth erupt at the age of 6 months.  Eruption completes by two and a half years of age.  The enamel of primary teeth is less mineralized and soft , making them more susceptible to cavities.

Point to remember:


  1. Babies should never be put down for a nap with a bottle containing milk or juice; night feedings should cease when teeth start to emerge hence increasing the risk of DECAY also known as NURSING BOTTLE CARIES.
  2. The FIRST DENTAL VISIT  should take place within SIX MONTHS after the first tooth appears. Don’t wait until there's an emergency.
  3. As soon as the first primary tooth erupts, parents should start brushing their children’s teeth.
  4. From 2 years, brushing twice daily with children’s toothpaste is a must.
  5. Once your kids reach an older age :  Monitor their brushing.; Provide a healthy diet.; Make sure they see the dentist regularly.


  1. The first molars erupt at age of 6, and second  molars at age of 12.  
  2. Sealing these teeth as soon as they come through with a thin protective coating known as SEALANTS  can keep them cavity-free from the beginning, which helps save time and money in the long run.
