The American Dental Association recommends a child’s first dental checkup should be around age one. In this post from Neal C. Johnson DMD in Billings, we are going to review four reasons why your toddler’s teeth are worth a dental visit.
- Twelve months of age happens to be about the time when a child’s first teeth tend erupt. Once those teeth are out, it’s time to get them looked at by a professional.
- One of the essential things we’ll do at this first visit is clean those young teeth and apply fluoride.
- Visiting the dentist at a young age is a great way to help your child get used to the dentist’s office. This will help them to be more relaxed with checkups as they grow older.
- Visiting the dentist also helps parents enlist the help of other adults in developing good dental habits in their children.
