It’s a question that many parents in Lansdale debate: When should I take my child in for their first dental appointment? The answer may be a little earlier than you think.
The American Dental Association recommends that a child sees a dentist around twelve months of age. This happens to be about the time when the first teeth tend to erupt.
Some Quakertown, Harleysville, and North Penn parents may wonder why dental visits are needed so early in their child’s life. Not only will your Doylestown dentist want to clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride, but it’s also important for small children to get used to seeing the dentist.
Starting early dental visits will mean that later in life your Lansdale child is less likely to require braces or other restorative or cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental implants.
