At what age should my child have their first dental visit?
Children should begin seeing their pediatric dentist around the age of one-year-old. This might seem very early to bring them to the dentist; however, it is important to start establishing a relationship with a dentist for your child to set them up for success in the future. These early visits give them a chance to acclimate to the dental office and sitting in the chair; they also allow your pediatric dentist to begin monitoring your child’s oral development.
Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?
Besides having additional years of training focused solely on working with children, a pediatric dentist also specializes in helping children with special needs or other unique issues that a general dentist may not have experience handling. Working with a pediatric dentist gives your child a better chance of avoiding problems like dental phobia, fear, or anxiety. Not to mention, it makes their visits a lot more fun!
Your pediatric dentist in Beaumont is also an excellent resource for any questions about oral development, health or your child's nutrition you may have.
