Watching your baby's first teeth develop is an exciting milestone! Those first little buds that come in are so cute! But we understand that tooth eruption can also feel overwhelming for a first-time parent. Throughout this process, you could have a lot of questions running through your head. Are my child's teeth developing on schedule? How can I keep them comfortable during teething? Are their primary (baby) teeth as essential as their permanent teeth?
These are typical concerns for parents. But with a bit of preparation, you'll be confident and ready for the arrival of your baby's primary teeth! Let's specifically go over how to prepare for the eruption of their back teeth, also known as molars.
By the time your child's molars begin to erupt, you've become adept at addressing their teething pain. Molars coming in might feel like a more significant hurdle in your child's oral development. But while molars are larger than the rest of their teeth and cover a larger surface area, there isn't a significant difference in their eruption process.
