First Dental Visit - Child Dental Health

THE FIRST YEAR OF LIFE

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association recommend that your child´s first visit to the dentist should be scheduled by their first birthday. Please, don´t wait; it is important that a proper "Dental Home" be established for your child before there is a problem.

Why So Early?

  • At your child´s initial visit we will review home care measures to help you and your child prevent future dental problems

  • Proper tooth brushing and other oral hygiene techniques will be discussed

  • Prevention of Early Childhood Caries (Baby Bottle Tooth Decay) will be reviewed

  • Proper diet and fluoride recommendation will be presented

  • Oral habits such as thumb sucking and pacifier use will be evaluated

  • Lifelong habits of oral care are formed by early impressions

Why We Treat Baby Teeth

  • Baby teeth are important! Some of them can last until age eleven or twelve.
  • Baby teeth have nerves. Untreated cavities in baby teeth can lead to pain and infection.

  • Baby teeth serve as guides to your permanent teeth. Early loss of baby teeth, due to disease or improper habits, can lead to improper alignment of your permanent teeth.

  • Every child deserves a healthy smile.
