 When To Take A Child To A Dentist For The First Time

In order to build a healthy dental foundation for little ones, it is important they visit a pediatric dentist from a young age. Baby teeth typically start growing in by 6 months of age, so typically between that time and the first birthday is a great time to make the first dental appointment. While they may only be baby teeth, they have a greater risk of developing painful cavities. As they grow and develop is the best time to make sure all is well in their mouths. Visiting a pediatric dentist helps to educate children to proper oral care habits, and ensure lifelong oral health.

How Often Does My Child Need To See A Pediatric Dentist

Just like mom and dad should visit the dentist every six months, your child should see a pediatric dentist on a similar six month schedule. There is a lot going on in a child’s mouth as baby teeth grow in, fall out and are replaced by adult teeth. Visiting the dentist regularly will help to make sure serious problems don’t develop, and correct any issues before they escalate. Not only this, they will continue to learn the best practices to develop a healthy oral care routine. By starting healthy habits from a young age, your child will grow knowing the importance of dental care.

What should I do if my child falls and knocks out a permanent tooth

Kids are always rough housing, and knocking out a permanent tooth as a result of it requires immediate care to help ensure the tooth is able to reattach. Any bleeding can be controlled by having the child bite down on a piece of gauze. If you’re able to reinsert the tooth into the socket without causing much distress to your child, that’s the best way to preserve the tooth until seeing a dentist. Make sure it is cleaned off first with a rinse of milk, and if you’re unable to reinsert it, you can keep it from drying out by placing in milk or salt water.
