When Should I Bring My Baby for A Dental Visit?As a new parent, you may not know when to take your child to a pediatric dentist. But taking your baby to a dentist regularly can help them overcome their dental fears and get a better dental formula as they grow up. Our dentist will also advise you on the best oral hygiene practices that will help improve your baby's teeth. Therefore, it is vital to bring your child to a dentist for proper teeth development.

When Should I Take My Baby for a Dental Checkup

It is never too early to take your child to a dentist. Most parents are advised to bring their baby for a dental checkup when they see the first teeth. This is usually to get your child used to a pediatric chair. However, if your child is not used to sugary foods or drinks, this can give you a one-year pass, and you can begin taking them to a dentist when all their teeth are showing.

During this time, ensure you follow up with proper oral hygiene practices to prevent tooth cavities and decay. Remember, their enamel is still soft at this point and can easily be eroded by acidic bacteria caused by too much sugar intake.

What Should I Expect When I Visit a Pediatric Dentist

There is so much to expect when you visit our pediatric dentist. They will treat your baby uniquely depending on their condition. The first thing they will do is examine your baby's gums, teeth, tongue, cheeks, and lips to see if they are in good health. You will also be provided with more details about oral hygiene, feeding habits, and the use of pacifiers. The best part is that you will be given a chance to ask questions.

Do not hesitate to visit our clinic to get the best dental care for your baby.
My daughter was a little nervous to have her dental work done but everyone in the office was super friendly and very reassuring and that helped her nervousness go away. Thanks for the excellent dental experience. ~ Lilyana G.
