My daughter is almost 21 months and when i look at her teeth they look like brittle and are already crack'n. I really think that she is too little to take to the dentist since they are her baby teeth but I just want to know if it will effect her permanent teeth.
As a former Dental Assistant here is my opinion--Your child is not 'too young' to see the dentist. Ideally dentists would like to see children for the 1st time when they are 1-2yrs old. If you have a family (or general) dentist that you see on a regular basis then take your child there, otherwise you may want to consider a pediatric dentist-- they specialize in children. I do think you should have your child's teeth checked out by a dentist and see what is going on with her teeth. Baby teeth are a lot more important than some people think and they should be treated as such and not ignored because they are 'only' baby teeth.
