As a parent, you are responsible for making a ton of decisions that will lead to your child being happy and healthy. If you have recently had a child, you may be
wondering when you should take him or her to the dentist. The answer? Now. Chances are that even if your child is as early as six months old, he/she will begin to have teeth coming in. Seeing as how this happens at different times for every child, however, we can safely say that your kiddo should see a dentist as the very latest, before they turn one year old.
Some parents think this is far too young, but oral health is always important regardless of age. You wouldn’t want your child to be experiencing tooth decay when they start kindergarten, would you? Well that is the reality for many parents as tooth decay is one of the most widespread and chronic childhood issues in America.
You can avoid this being the case with your child, however, by simply taking him/her to your Woodbury dentist at Corsi Dental Associates. We can make sure your child’s teeth are in good shape and show you how to teach your little one about oral hygiene in a way that will promote lifelong oral health. If you are unsure of whether or not it is too soon for your child to see a dentist stop by or call our office to ask. We can tell you when you should make an appointment for your child or schedule one right then and there. We look forward to hearing from you!
