A child’s smile is constantly changing, from the number and position of their teeth to the size and shape of their jaw and other facial structures. When caring for your child’s teeth, it is important to remember that primary teeth (or baby teeth) set the stage for a child’s permanent adult smile. Therefore, keeping their primary teeth healthy is not only advisable, but also highly-influential to how healthy their smile will be in the future.
Young children should first visit the dentist by the age of three months for an initial “happy” visit, which will allow them to see and experience the dentist’s office and grow accustomed to it. The visit will include a cursory examination and helpful tips for keeping your child’s gums clean until their first tooth erupts.
Regular Children’s Dental Care
By the age of one, or after the first tooth appears, you should bring your child in again for a brief examination, and by the age of three, children should begin seeing the dentist regularly for routine checkups and cleanings. If necessary, your dentist can recommend procedures to protect and strengthen your child’s teeth, such as dental sealants that provide a barrier against oral bacteria, and fluoride treatments to strengthen tooth enamel.
