It’s a question that many parents ask: When should I take my child in for their first dental appointment? The answer from Crystal Dental Group in High Point may surprise you, because it’s a little earlier than you think.
We are in agreement with the American Dental Association, which recommends that a child sees a dentist around twelve months of age. This happens to be about the time when the first teeth come in.
Some parents may wonder why dental visits are needed so early in their child’s life. Not only will we clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride, it’s also important for small children to get used to seeing the dentist.
Parents should be taking care of their baby’s mouth even before the teeth start coming in. The best way to do this is to use a piece of gauze or a soft washcloth. Wet it with warm water and gently dab it around the inside of the baby’s mouth.
