Did you know that the health of your child’s primary teeth is just as important as their overall health? According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), the first dental visit should take place within six months after a child’s first tooth emerges or by their first birthday, whichever is sooner. It’s never too early to introduce your little one to a positive pediatric dental experience.
Pediatric dental care is more than just evaluating the teeth for cavities. Aside from highlighting the importance of developing good dental habits, it also seeks to cultivate a favorable view of dental visits. Since each routine dental visit focuses on prevention, your child’s dentist will discuss
proper home hygiene
preventative care and a healthy diet
growth and development of the teeth and jaws
The sooner your youngster begins getting regular dental checkups, the healthier their mouths will stay for the rest of their lives. At Seaside Dentistry, our friendly staff is specially trained to foster trust and confidence in your child. We make sure that pediatric dental care is a positive experience for all.
