Dental care for children and young adults

Primary teeth - When should I start brushing them?

Primary teeth typically begin to erupt between the ages of 4 to 11 months, and most children have all their primary teeth by the age of 3.

Start brushing when the first primary tooth erupts. Use either a regular toothbrush or an electric toothbrush. Fluoride toothpaste should be used when brushing as soon as the first primary teeth erupt. The fluoride in the toothpaste strengthens the teeth and makes them more resistant to cavities.

Teens and Young Adults:

Unfortunately, after organized school dental care, teenagers' teeth often go untreated, as they suddenly must learn to take the initiative to seek care themselves.

Wisdom teeth and when to remove them

The most common dental problems among young adults, besides cavities and gum inflammation, are issues with erupting wisdom teeth that rarely fit properly in the jaw. Therefore, they often need to be removed. We advise having wisdom teeth removed at a young age when the procedure is easier, and recovery is quicker.

Wisdom teeth erupt between the ages of 18 to 25. However, many people's jaws do not have enough space for these teeth, and due to crowding and misalignment, wisdom teeth are particularly difficult to keep clean. Therefore, they are prone to cavities or cause painful infections in the gum.
