Age 6

Before the age of 6-7 a child begins to get his 1st permanent molar. These adult molars do not replace any baby teeth but quietly grow behind them. Most parents do not realise that and hence these are the teeth that get decayed very often. It is strongly recommended that from the age of 6 years a child should start visiting a dentist for regular dental check up.
