When to Visit a Dentist?
If you’re concerned about your child’s oral health, you can rely on us. One of the most common questions we receive is when to bring your child for their first dental visit. At Integral Dental, Ellice Dental, and Pearl Dental, we recommend bringing children to our clinic when they get their first tooth, or when they reach their first birthday. While it’s a fact that your child will lose their baby teeth later, taking care of these teeth is important because they are very porous and are more susceptible to decay compared to adult teeth.
It is an excellent idea to teach your children about optimal oral hygiene as soon as they are able to understand the concept. You can begin brushing your child’s teeth as soon as a tooth comes in using a soft-bristled toothbrush designed for baby teeth. Until they know not to swallow toothpaste, we suggest using only water to brush your child’s teeth.
During your child’s many visits to our clinic in their first year of life, our dentists will do basic examinations of your child’s mouth. If your child has missed the one-year or first-tooth mark, no need to worry - it’s never too late to bring your child in for the first visit. Our dentists are trained to thoroughly examine your child’s oral health and identify any potential issues with your child’s jaw or soft palate.
