When To Schedule Your Child's First Dental Appointment
Dentists nationwide will agree that your child’s first dental appointment should occur within six months of the eruption of their first baby tooth. So if you’ve been experiencing late nights or early mornings as your red-faced baby begins to teeth, it might be time to schedule your child’s first visit to the dentist. Don’t be fooled when baby teeth fall out and new teeth come in!
Your child’s first set of teeth often defines how his or her dental health will be affected over time. With regular visits to the dentist early on, your child’s oral health is monitored in its earlier stages to support better overall health over time.
