A common question that comes up with parents is when should I take my children to see the dentist. This varies but in general once the teeth start coming in which is usually around 7 months or so you might want to take the child in for just a quick evaluation of his two little teeth coming in. The two bottom teeth are usually the first ones to come in. When you are bathing you should get your child a little washcloth so your child could get comfortable with you rubbing their gums and teeth and keeping their teeth clean. These are some good practices but in general as soon as you see the teeth coming in you probably want to take them to a dentist to be evaluated.
