Children have an initial set of teeth, milk teeth, correctly termed deciduous teeth or primary teeth. These are smaller in size, and start coming by the age of 8 months plus, and by the age of 2 ½ years all the primary teeth have erupted in the mouth. By the age of 6 years onwards these teeth start dropping off and are replaced by much bigger adult teeth (permanent teeth).

Children usually love eating candies and keep munching through the day. Sugary foods are known to increase the acidity in the mouth and promote decay. Also many children are very fearful about dental treatment. At DentalOne, doctors are trained to treat the children and manage their fears very well. As a result the child is calm, comfortable and allows for all variety of dental treatment to be done.
