How often should children see a dentist?
There is a misconception surrounding the care of children’s teeth. For many people, a children’s dental visit is not a top priority because their first set of teeth will fall out. We cannot stress enough how important it is for your children to see a dentist every 6 months. Children’s teeth provide the foundation for the primary adult teeth and can help to detect problems early.
Another area that can have a significant impact on a child’s oral health is their diet. Many know the unhealthy affects sugary foods and drinks can have on your teeth, including decay. However, are your aware of the health benefits of certain foods for keeping teeth strong? Foods containing dairy and crunchy vegetables, such as carrots and celery should be a staple in your children’s diet.
Baby’s first dental visits
With healthy teeth, your child can speak clearly, chew food easily, smile with confidence and avoid common dental issues. Starting their visits early will give them healthier teeth and gums throughout their lifetime. We recommend that you bring your child in six months after the eruption of their first tooth.
By taking your child to the dentist from a young age they won’t experience fear and anxiety about dentistry; instead, they will acquire lifelong healthy dental habits.
