Begin a lifetime of good oral hygiene by bringing your infant to the dentist. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends infants go to the dentist by their first birthday. Not only do early dental visits help you keep your infant’s mouth clean and healthy, they will increase the likelihood of your child feeling comfortable during future visits.
At this first checkup, we will:
• Educate you on how to take care of your infant’s teeth
• Evaluate your infant’s teeth growth
• Discuss your child’s eating and feeding behavior
• Record your family’s medical history
• Provide counseling on the use of pacifiers and thumb sucking
Infants will also be assessed for their risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease. We are also available anytime to discuss ways to ease the discomfort of teething.
