Deciduous teeth or milk teeth are an individual's first set. Milk teeth are essential for proper development of the jaws and are pushed out by the eruption of permanent teeth. The first milk teeth are the lower incisors, which appear at around 6/8 months; the last deciduous teeth, which are replaced at around the age of 12, are the canines.

It is important to pay attention to the eruption of 1st permanent molars at around 6 years of age. These teeth erupt behind the milk molars and it is often only the dentist, during follow-up visits, who becomes aware of their presence.

It should be advisable that children have a first check-up at around 3-4 years of age and, from then on once a year until the age of 6. After that, it is essential to visit every 6 months.

A dentist can seal the grooves of the permanent molars or can locally apply high concentrations of fluoride so as to prevent the occurrence of caries.

It is important to prevent your children from consuming too much sugary food or drink as these lower the pH of the saliva, causing decalcification of the enamel, which can result in the onset of caries.
