Kids Should See the Dentist Starting at Age 1, or When They Lose Their First Tooth
Are you a new parent? Did you know that the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends your child sees the dentist for the first time by the age of 1, or whenever their first tooth emerges?
Do you have an older child who hasn’t seen the dentist yet? Now is the perfect time to start, no matter how old they are. The sooner you start seeing the dentist for routine visits, the sooner you can get peace of mind, and know that their mouth is healthy and their teeth are strong.
Children of All Ages Need to Get a Checkup Every Six Months
Once your child has seen the dentist for the first time, you’ll need to come back for an appointment every six months. Seeing Dr. Brandon Dreier and the team at Dreier Family Dentistry regularly ensures that we can keep your child’s teeth and gums clean, and keep an eye out for any potential oral health problems.
Plus, with treatments like dental sealants and fluoride treatments, you can fight back against tooth decay and keep your child’s teeth stronger.
Understanding the Importance of Early Dental Care for Children
Why should you start bringing your child to the dentist as early as possible? First and foremost, this is the best way to keep an eye on their oral health and their dental development. Regular appointments with Dr. Dreier will ensure that their smiles are healthy, and that we recognize potential issues like a bad bite, crowded teeth, or a narrow palate early.
In addition, seeing the dentist regularly from an early age will help your child learn more about the importance of proper oral care, and develop healthy dental hygiene habits that will stick with them for the rest of their lives.
Not only that, but early dental care for children will make them more familiar with the process of visiting the dentist for regular dental care. They will develop a relationship with Dr. Dreier and our staff, and be less likely to feel nervous and anxious about dental care as they grow older, ensuring they develop a healthy attitude toward dentistry.
