Early dental visits: laying the foundation for your child’s future oral health
Like many other aspects of our lives, the oral hygiene habits and dental experiences from childhood are often carried into adulthood, where they can either positively or negatively impact our future oral health. Additionally, many health or developmental issues with children’s teeth, jaw, gums, or other oral structures are typically easier to address at an early stage rather than waiting until they are older. That’s why we focus on making dental visits fun, gentle, and educational while ensuring that your child’s mouth is developing correctly.
We suggest that families bring their children when the first tooth comes in or by their first birthday. That enables us to develop a relationship with your family and helps your child become comfortable in the dentist’s office, forming a positive association with receiving dental care.
- Children’s teeth and gums are susceptible to decay and disease, just like adults. So, we will also perform a baseline evaluation and continue to monitor your child’s mouth for tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues at their check-up visits every six months.
- Children’s dental visits are an excellent time for you as a parent to ask any questions about taking care of your child’s mouth and what to expect as they grow.
- During check-ups, we also monitor your child’s jaw development, the way their teeth are growing in, and other developmental milestones. If any potential issues are identified, early intervention can help reduce your child’s discomfort, time in the dental chair, and costs down the road.
