Did you know that The American Dental Association recommends that a child’s first visit to a dentist should occur around twelve months of age? It’s true! The Fayetteville Dentist offers pediatric dentistry.
For many parents, it’s surprising to find that kids should visit the dentist at such an early age. In this post, we are going to review four reasons why your toddler’s teeth are worth a dental visit.
- Twelve months of age is about the time when a little one’s first teeth erupt. Once those teeth come in, it’s time to get them looked at by a professional.
- One of the things we’ll do at this first visit is clean those young teeth and apply fluoride.
- Visiting the dentist at an early age is a great way to help your child get used to our office. This will help them to be more comfortable with the dentist as they grow older.
- Visiting the dentist also helps parents enlist the help of other adults in establishing good dental habits in their children.
If your child is apprehensive about visiting the dentist, you might want to bring them for a short tour of our office beforehand. They can meet our friendly staff and learn what to expect when they come in for their exam.
