What to Expect During Your Baby’s First Dental Visit

As parents know, there are many milestones along the path of childhood, as kids mature and grow. Well-check visits abound, routinely offering parents the chance to check in on their child’s physical health and make sure everything looks just right.

An early visit to the dentist is important as well, as soon as your child receives his or her first tooth. Your baby can get cavities as soon as the first tooth emerges, so it’s essential to be proactive.

It’s important to be positive with your baby about their first visit and to make the experience as exciting as possible, just as you do when brushing teeth at home. Showing your child videos or apps of the dentist can help make them more comfortable when the time comes for the first appointment.

On the day of your first appointment, you can expect to hold your baby or sit very close to him or her as the dentist checks your child’s jaw and teeth. We will also check to make sure that there aren’t any cavities or other problems with your child’s oral health.

To make the first dental visit as smooth as possible, we recommend scheduling an appointment when your child is typically awake and alert and to make sure that your child is well-fed and not hungry when you arrive.

If you have any questions about your baby’s dental health or if you would like to schedule a free consultation, please contact our team or make an appointment. Our incredible staff will give you the best dental care possible.
