Did you know that your baby’s underdeveloped teeth are already in her jawbone at birth? And the first tooth may begin to appear between four and six months of age, although of course every child is different.

Watch this video from the American Dental Association to learn more about the development of your baby’s teeth and how you can help soothe teething pain.

At Aberdeen Smiles, we recommend you bring your baby in to see us when she’s six months old or or when her first tooth comes in. We will make sure everything looks good and advise you on care. Call our Aberdeen, SD office at 605-277-9049 or request an appointment online.
