Keeping you up to date with the latest news in dentistry
With so many new and exciting things happening in those very first few months of life, it can be a little overwhelming at times. Baby well check-ups, 2, 4, and 6 month vaccinations, and 6 month eye exams. Have you ever wondered when you should be bringing your child to the dentist for the first time?? Would you believe that it’s as early as 6 months old?? Maybe you’re thinking, “But my baby doesn’t even have teeth yet.” Then why? To gain some first hand dental knowledge for your growing, precious baby, from the professionals you know and trust.
What can you expect at your baby’s 6 month visit to the dentist?
After your baby’s initial visit, it is up to you to take good care of their teeth!
This includes, daily brushing and flossing, as well as a general scan of your baby’s mouth for anything that looks out of the ordinary, such as a black spot, a hole in the tooth, or complaints of tooth pain. At this point, no matter the age of your child, they need to be seen by a dental professional. Otherwise, around the age of 3 or when you think that your child would be able to enjoy a ride in the chair, is a good time to bring them back for their follow-up appointment.
Good habits and a positive attitude towards your child’s dental health are so crucial for the future of your child’s teeth.
