When do our kids teeth fall out, and grow into place?

Here at the Aperture Dental, few of the most asked questions about kids' teeth are:

  • when do the baby teeth come through,
  • when do the baby teeth fall out, and
  • when do the adult teeth grow into position.

Well, here's a great detailed chart attached below to help give you an idea of when these times are.

It is to be expected that different children will have different shedding and eruption times for their baby and adult teeth, so it is important that they get their teeth checked regularly (every 6 months). This is to ensure that no problems are happening, for example - missing teeth, crowding of the teeth, holes in the teeth, or even EXTRA teeth (!).

I guess this chart helps the 'Tooth Fairy' prepare as well...

Dental team visit to SunKids Centre at Eight Mile Plains

Last week, our practice was invited to give a little show to the kids at Sunkids Centre at Eight Mile Plains to talk/teach them about taking care of their pearly whites. We had the most wonderful time talking to the kids about brushing their teeth (with our large model of teeth), choosing to eat more healthy foods, and even singing a toothbrushing song!

We even managed to convince our beautiful Josie to dress up as a tooth fairy!

Here are some of the pictures of the things we discussed:

We talked about brushing their teeth for at least 2 minutes a twice a day, and making sure they brush all sides of their teeth (e.g. - the lip/cheek side, the tongue/palate side, and the biting side).

We got the kids to sort and stick pictures of food in the 'HEALTHY FOOD' (e.g. fruits and veges) and 'SOMETIMES FOOD' (lollies, ice cream, cakes) sections.

ToothBrushing Song

Got my toothpaste, got my brush
I won’t hurry, I won’t rush.
Making sure my teeth are clean
front and back and in between.
When I brush them for a while
I will have a HAPPY SMILE!

Overall, it was a great experience, and hopefully, we get to do this more, because it is so cool when kids have the knowledge, and practice it!

We also have to give credit to the Carers/Teachers there who do this almost everyday! I don't  know how they do it!
