Most parents aren’t aware of when they should take their child to see the dentist and they may end up doing so far too late. At Kids Dental Group, we always encourage parents to bring their children to the dentist at an early age. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends taking a child to the dentist when they’re six months to a year in age. Here are some guidelines to keep in mind:
Visit The Dentist When Your Child’s First Tooth Appears
It is a good idea to visit the dentist as soon as your child sprouts their first tooth. This allows our Pediatric dentists to keep an eye on the development of your child’s mouth. We will ensure that their primary teeth develop well and that healthy oral care routines start early.
Easing Your Child Into Dental Visits
If your child has been visiting the dentist since before they can remember, it will become a part of their routine. This means you will have to deal with fewer tantrums and your child will be comfortable during these visits.
If you want to book an appointment for your child At Kids Dental Group¸ don’t hesitate to reach out to us online or call us directly at any of our offices in Richmond Hill, Markam, and Stouffville.
