Frequently Asked Questions

When can I expect my child's initial teeth to appear?

Typically, the first teeth to emerge are the 2 lower front incisors, usually making their debut between 6 to 10 months of age.

What's the recommended age for my child's first dental visit?

The American Dental Association suggests scheduling your child’s first dental exam either after their first tooth appears or by their first birthday ⏤ this establishes a foundation for lifelong oral health.

How frequently should my child visit the dentist for check-ups?

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, children should have dental appointments at least twice a year, aligning with the same recommendation for adults. Regular dental visits with our pediatric dentists can prevent cavities, alleviate dental discomfort, and mitigate future oral health concerns.

What strategies can I use to instill good oral hygiene practices in my child?

Good oral hygiene habits involve starting early, using age-appropriate toothbrushes, establishing routines, and leading by example.

  • Make brushing enjoyable with timers or music, offer praise, and demonstrate proper brushing techniques
  • Encourage a balanced diet with minimal sugary snacks and beverages
  • Ensure regular dental check-ups starting at age 1 for professional guidance

Consistency and patience are crucial to help your child develop a lasting oral hygiene routine.
