After months of crying, slobbering, chewing, and sleepless nights, your child finally has all their baby teeth. Now, the anticipation builds for their first visit from the Tooth Fairy, but when will they lose their first tooth? Generally, you can expect a loose tooth around the age of 6. Although they will each eventually fall out, they serve an important role. To ensure that their baby teeth allow your child to develop proper chewing and speaking abilities, it is best to care for their smiles to nurture their oral health. If they lose a tooth too early, you will need to see your family dentist in Vienna.

It’s a well-known fact that beauty is all about proportions. When it comes to your smile, having the “golden” ratio of visible gum tissue to tooth enamel equals a truly dazzling smile — but people who have had gum disease or who brush their teeth too aggressively may be dealing with what we call gum recession. This is what happens when the gum tissue has visibly pulled away from where it should be against the teeth, leaving too much enamel exposed. To help, your dentist in Vienna offers the Chao Pinhole Technique — a revolutionary procedure that eliminates the need for sutures and stitches that come with traditional gum grafts.
