When Should My Child
Start Seeing the Dentist?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children should start seeing a dentist when their first tooth comes out or when they turn 12 months old, whichever comes first. Regular preventive appointments from a young age will ensure that your child’s mouth is developing properly, and help prevent common issues like cavities in baby teeth. During these appointments, you’ll also be able to ask Dr. Seisman any questions you may have about caring for your child’s mouth and their oral development.
The Importance of Pediatric Care
Benefits of Early Dental Appointments
Your child will become more familiar with the process of dental appointments, and after a few visits it will not feel intimidating or scary. This helps prevent the development of dental anxiety in the future.
Seeing a family dentist like Dr. Seisman also allows you and your children to develop a real relationship with the team at Three Notch Dental. We will get to know you and your family, and understand the oral health challenges that may face your children as they grow.
Any oral development issues will be caught early and can be taken care of before they become bigger problems.
Understanding the Importance
Of Preventive Care
Bringing your child to see a family dentist like Dr. Seisman every six months is the best way to protect their teeth. Cavities are the most common preventable childhood disease, and about 20% of all kids between the ages of 5-11 have an untreated, decayed permanent tooth.
However, if your child comes in for regular six-month appointments, we can catch cavities early. By cleaning your child’s mouth and using treatments like fluoride treatments and dental sealants, we can strengthen little teeth and prevent cavities from forming.
