At Ambrosi Place Dental, we strive to create an innovative dental experience. Curious what that's like?
It is best to bring in your child before their first birthday, or six months after their first tooth makes an appearance. Introducing them to their dentist early in life reduces fear and anxiety that can accompany a visit to the dentist.
A complete set of dental x-rays is necessary to give us the whole picture so we can develop your personal dental plan. There are several things that a dentist can’t see just by looking in your mouth. They include:
No, he’s not part shark, but he does have what is known as paediatric shark teeth. This happens when the permanent teeth decide to come through before the baby teeth have fallen out. We are born with 20 baby teeth. They usually break through the gums around six month of age. Around age four to six, the adult teeth push them out. When the baby teeth don’t give the adult teeth room to come out, a second row appears behind the baby teeth.
This often does not require anything but patience. If a baby tooth refuses to come out, we can remove it, giving the new tooth plenty of room to move into place.
