The importance in getting your child to the dentist early in life in Asheboro, NC

In America, there are many children who won’t see a dentist until they hit 2 years in age (or even older). Dental professionals recommend a child’s first visit occur earlier than this. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child’s first dental visit be around the age of one or in the range of six months after they get their first tooth. Dr. Sona Isharani and her team at Triad Pediatric Dentistry in Asheboro, NC encourage you to bring your child in for their first exam to an environment that is welcoming and friendly to all children.

Primary teeth – more important than you think

There are many reasons given for why children are not brought into their first dental visit until they are past the recommended age and typically include “my baby just didn’t have enough teeth yet” or “my baby is too young and just not ready”. The AAPD states that it’s incredibly important for primary (baby) teeth to remain healthy and in place until they fall out naturally. Primary teeth are important for the following reasons:

  • They assist in proper chewing, ensuring your child maintains good nutrition
  • They play a role in speech development
  • They help preserve space for incoming permanent teeth
  • They provide a beautiful smile that helps your children feel great about how they look

Getting your child into the dentist at the recommended age of 2 years will also have advantages for you, the parent. Dr. Isharani views these early visits as a great opportunity to educate parents on the best ways to care for their children’s teeth.

Prevent future dental anxiety and fear

Another great reason to bring your child into the dentist starting at the recommended age is so that a relationship can be developed between the dentist and your child. This fosters an experience that, by the age when most kids are afraid of the dentist, your child will be comfortable and anxiety free. They may even enjoy going to the dentist! If you wait until your child is older, they may be faced with anxiety or fear regarding their first dental visit.

Dr. Sona Isharani invites you to bring your children into her office today for a dental exam. Dr. Isharani excels in developing wonderful relationships with the children she treats so that they are as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible when receiving her professional care.
