Regardless if you’re one year old or a hundred, it’s always a great idea to go see a dentist for regular checkups. For parents of infants, they may have questions or maybe concerns about their child’s oral health. In fact, dentists recommend that your child’s first visit to the dentist should be at age one.
Your dentist will work with you to get the best care for your child’s first dental visit. We want you to have the peace of mind in knowing that your child’s oral health is our number one priority, even when they grow through all stages of childhood. If you have yet to set up your child’s first appointment and is at least a year old, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
Nothing makes a parent more nervous than a child’s first visit to the dentist. Typically, this first visit will simply consist of a routine exam. We’ll even work with you to make sure that you stay on top of your child’s oral health while they are in their infancy and toddler years. Unfortunately, tooth decay can happen at an early age. It is our mission to make sure that when it comes to your child, it never comes down to that.
As mentioned, the dentist will perform a gentle routine exam of your child’s mouth. At the same time, the dentist will check to see if there are early signs of any dental problems and perform a risk assessment of whether or not these problems will happen in the future. We strive to stay ahead of the game when it comes to your child’s oral health. We will also discuss with you what can be done to ensure that your child has great oral health throughout their childhood and yes, even their adult years as well.
