Children & Adolescents

Around the ages of six to eight years, the first teeth start to fall out and the permanent teeth erupt through the gums. By the age of 13 years, most of the permanent teeth, except for the wisdom teeth, should be in.

Permanent teeth will not be replaced, so remember:

  • Brush at least twice per day and floss once per day
  • Reduce sugar Intake. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria that feed on sugar. This forms acid that harms your teeth
  • Limit snacking
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet
  • Wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth when you are playing sports

Watch videos on our youtube for helpful tips on brushing your child's teeth will make brushing a fun and easy task.
