wondering whether you should take your newborn in for an exam for their teeth? Simple answer: yes. The video discusses the reasons why this is crucial as well as the duties the dentist is able to perform, as well as tips for scheduling an appointment.
Take your child to their first dental visit prior to the time the first tooth is seen or prior to the age of one. This is vital because they can develop cavities from the moment that their first tooth begins to appear. At the first appointment your dentist will inspect the mouth of your child for signs of the growth and development. The dentist will also look for mouth injuries, cavities, and other problems. If your child is going through a difficult time with teething or is engaging in thumb-sucking or over-use of pacifiers, it is recommended to discuss the issue with your dentist.
It is best to arrange your visit for a time your child will be more comfortable with. You should definitely avoid dental visits during their usual nap times. There is a possibility that you can fill out paperwork prior to the appointment in some dental offices. Check to see if your child’s name appears as a dental patient on all insurance plans. Now you know all about visit to the dentist with your children.
