Age 1 to 2 Visits
Those first milestones that babies have can be so exciting. When your baby gets their first tooth everyone is bound to celebrate, not only because it is a big deal in your child’s life, but also because it means some of the fussing from teeth will now be over, for a while at least! What you might not think of, but should, is coming in for your baby’s first appointment now that she has a tooth.
It might seem odd to come in and see us when your baby has just one tooth; what could we possibly do? This appointment is not about cleaning; it is more about getting a baseline of your baby’s mouth. We will take a look at the development of her mouth and let you know about any issues that we see that could be a problem down the road. This will give you a time to ask us any questions and for us to give you advice on proper oral health care to ensure optimal oral health down the road for your baby.
We know you want what is best for your baby, and bringing her in for her appointment after that first tooth erupts or right after her first birthday is essential. Why not make your appointment today? You can get your baby on the road to good oral health and be prepared for any questions that might arise in the future. In addition, your child will grow up knowing that going to the dentist is a natural part of life—there is nothing to be afraid of!
