At what age should I bring my child to the dentist?
It is very important to make sure your child has a healthy, positive start with their oral health care. We see children of all ages, and we like to start seeing them around age one or when their baby teeth start to appear.
You may wonder why we need to see kids at this young age. There are a couple of reasons for this:
First, we want to help kids get used to the idea of being in a dental office. There are a lot of new sights and sounds to take in, so we want them to have the time they need to adjust slowly. We also don’t want to wait to see them until they have a problem, because we don’t want them to associate visits to the dentist with pain.
It is also essential to monitor your child’s early dental development. Baby teeth play a critical role because they act as placeholders for the permanent teeth that will soon follow. When we see your child when their teeth start to appear, we can keep an eye on things and treat problems before they damage your child’s oral health. You can be confident that your child’s oral health is in the best possible hands. If it’s time to schedule your child’s first visit or you have questions, please call OrthoGrace Dental to arrange an appointment.
