The two front, lower incisors are usually the first teeth to come in and this generally happens when a child is around 6 to 10 months old.
The American Dental Association recommends that a child has their first dental exam either once their first tooth has come in, or by the time they are one year old. While that may seem early to bring your child to the dentist, it ensures that they are getting a head start on a life of great oral health.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children see the dentist at least twice a year. This is also the recommendation for adults. With regular dental visits, our children’s dentists can help your kid avoid cavities, dental pain, and future oral health issues.
Pediatric dentistry is a special sector of the dental field that focuses solely on providing dental care for infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special needs. Pediatric dentists provide comprehensive oral healthcare for their patients and help start them on the right path towards a lifetime of healthy smiles. They also take the time to educate their patients and their parents about the importance of preventive dentistry and routine care.
Yes, we do. However, we take the time to assess your child’s health, their age, which tooth is involved and if it’s a baby tooth, and the extent of the problem before moving forward with root canal therapy. If your child has a toothache, decay, or a potential infection, please bring them in to see us right away, so we can help alleviate the problem before it worsens.
