3 Important reasons to Bring Your Child to the Dentist Early

1.Taking a child to a dentist early on gives them a chance to familiarize themselves with the environment. It can teach your child that visits the dentist are safe and an important step in the prevention and treatment of problems.

  1. Find out if the teeth cleaning routine at home is working well. If spots are being missed, early discovery is key to keeping those teeth healthy!

3.By visiting the dentist every six months, your dentist can be proactive and catch any developing issues early.

Kinds to Encourage Good Dental Care for Children:

Begin even before the first tooth appears! Using a clean, damp cloth, wipe your baby’s gums twice a day.

Avoid offering bottles before naps or bedtime. Try using water instead of milk or juice to avoid decay. Limit time with a bottle to five minutes or less to help prevent the development of orthodontic issues.

Take your child for their first dental visit around 12 months of age.

At the first sign of a tooth, brush your child’s teeth daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a very small amount of fluoride-free toothpaste until they’re old enough to spit it out (typically around 3 years old).

Let your child practice brushing by copying you, then finish for them, making sure that all surfaces have been cleaned. Your child will need help with brushing until they’re about 8 years old.

Teach your child to brush for two minutes twice a day.

Replace toothbrushes every few months. When they begin to show signs of wear, such as flattening or bushy bristles.

Bring your child for regular dental visits. Every six months is awesome, but this may depending on your dentist.
