The Life of a Tooth

Everything is part of the cycle of life.

A tooth is no different.

0-12 months- baby’s first tooth erupts

3 years old- baby’s first dental visit

7 years old- child loses first tooth

13 years old- child has lost all baby teeth

15 years old- child gets braces

20 years old- wisdom teeth may appear

40 years old- tooth decay is common

65 years old- may need replacement teeth

 

To everything there is a season…

even for a tooth.
