Time to see the Dentist!

By: Dr. James Frizzell, Mar 26, 2014

When should my child first see a dentist, and why?

Your child's first visit to the dentist

The ideal time is six months after your child’s first (primary) teeth erupt. This time frame is a perfect opportunity for the dentist to carefully examine the development of your child’s mouth. Because dental problems often start early, the sooner the visit the better.

To safeguard against problems such as baby bottle tooth decay, teething irritations, gum disease, and prolonged thumb-sucking, the dentist can provide or recommend special preventive care.
