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?
In this blog post from Durham Dental Group, we are going to review 4 reasons why your toddler’s teeth are worth a dental visit.
1. Twelve months of age happens to be about the time when a child’s first teeth tend to erupt. Once those teeth are out, it’s time to get them looked at by a professional.
2. One of the most important things we will do at this visit will be to clean those young teeth and apply fluoride.
3. Visiting the dentist at a young age is a great way to help your child get used to the dentist’s office. This will help them to be more comfortable with the dentist as they grow older.
4. Visiting the dentist also helps parents enlist the help of other adults is establishing good dental habits in their children.
