Most People Start Their Child Late at the Dentist
Most families don’t have their children see the dentist until they are well over 2 years old. The American Association of Pediatric Dentists recommend a first oral checkup when baby teeth emerge. A visit when your child is a baby is essential to check for gum or tooth decay signs. It is also necessary that your child’s teeth are erupting correctly. You can expect your baby’s teeth to begin emerging at six months.
The most common childhood disease is tooth decay. This issue is preventable. When kids come to a first appointment at three or four years old, they often have many cavities and tooth decay. You should start your child young. Early positive experiences help a child feel positive about dental visits.
What if My Child is Scared Before Their First Visit?
Dr. Bao will take care that your child has fun during their visit to our office. What if your child is scared about their first dentist visit? For these patients, we suggest that the parents bring the child for a tour. Take that time to introduce your kid to our staff, take a look around the office, and get comfortable.
