Dental professionals are often asked how old a person has to be for their first dental appointment, and we enthusiastically respond with, ‘As soon as possible!’ Babies are a perfect age to begin seeing a dentist because those appointments help the entire family learn how to grow with their developing child and prevent painful problems associated with oral diseases.
Would you believe those tiny, precious teeth that first erupt in a baby’s lower jaw are prone to cavities from sipping on a bottle? Did you know that dentists have a special way of examining a baby’s mouth, with baby safely held in mother’s lap? Have you ever considered routine professional dental cleanings as great opportunities for your toddler to build trust and have fun at the dental office? Do you mistakenly believe that baby teeth aren’t that important because they are going to fall out eventually?
Visiting the dentist is so much more than treating cavities! We are here to help guide you and your children toward a lifetime of proper oral hygiene, nutrition, and behaviors that prevent disease and disorders. Never hesitate to schedule a dental appointment for your child, no matter how young. Prevention is everything!
