The Importance of Early Dental Visits

Infants should be seen by a dentist after the first six months of age, and at least by the child's first birthday.

By this time, the baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are beginning to erupt and it is a critical time to spot any problems before they become big concerns.

It is essential that a child's primary teeth are healthy, because their development sets the stage for permanent teeth. 

Your Child's Developing Smile

Every child grows 20 primary teeth, usually by the age of 3. These teeth are gradually replaced by the age of 12 with a full set of 28 permanent teeth, and later on, four molars called wisdom teeth.

Hygiene & Preventive Care

Visiting the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when your child is young is essential to preserve the baby teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by the adult teeth.

During each appointment, your dentist or hygienist will review oral hygiene techniques with your child to ensure that their smile is getting proper care at home.

Restorative Care

If your child is at risk of decay, develops a cavity, or is experiencing misalignment issues, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatment options for your child such as dental fillings and dental sealants.

Many of our locations also ofter frenectomies for babies or young children with a restricted frenum, more commonly referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied or cheek-tied.
