Also, teach them and enforce an effective at-home dental hygiene routine. These dental visits and proper at-home care will help to ensure the good oral health of your child for years to come.
When Should My Child Go to the Dentist?
Your child’s first dental appointment should happen within six months after their first tooth erupts or by his or her first birthday. Children greatly benefit from these early cleaning and exams as they help detect initial stages of tooth decay and prevent gum disease and other health issues.
What Will My Child’s Dental Visit Entail?
Each visit will consist of our caring and skilled dental team:
- Gently cleaning your child’s teeth and removing any plaque or tartar.
- Carefully examining their mouth and teeth for potential issues.
- Discussing good dental hygiene habits and healthy choices.
- Discussing treatment of your child’s teeth with fluoride and dental sealants.
If your child’s teeth are left without proper dental care, they will face decay and disease that can potentially last a lifetime, with much discomfort pain and many complications in tow. Instead, schedule an appointment for your child with Family & Implant Dentistry of Boynton Beach and help them to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile for life.
