Establishing proper dental habits for your children at an early age is crucial for ensuring their oral health throughout adulthood. It’s never too early for children to visit the dentist. While they may not have an inherent fear of the dentist, they may feel apprehensive about the unknown. That’s why it’s important for your child to develop a positive rapport with dentistry from a young age.
According to the guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, it is recommended for children to have their first dental visit by the age of one. This early visit ensures that their newly emerged teeth receive the necessary care right from the start.
Regardless of when you decide to introduce your child to the dentist, it is crucial for them to have regular cleanings, examinations, and develop good oral habits by the time their permanent adult teeth begin to emerge. Our team is dedicated to creating a calm and positive environment for your child, regardless of their age, to ensure a positive dental experience.
Regular dental visits as your child grows are vital not only for maintaining their oral health but also for monitoring other aspects such as the development of their facial skeleton and airways. These examinations play a crucial role in identifying any potential sleep apnea issues early on, before they can negatively impact their brain function.
