Babies should see a dentist by the time they reach six months of age, or at minimum by their first birthday. By this time, their first teeth, or primary teeth, are starting to erupt. It is a critical time to spot any problems before they develop into big concerns.
At Driftwood Dental, we can tailor our services to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Seeing the dentist for routine exams and cleanings while your child is young will help preserve their primary teeth until they are ready to fall out naturally and be replaced by their permanent adult teeth. During each appointment, we will review proper preventive hygiene techniques to ensure your child's smile is getting the proper care at home.
Sometimes despite taking the most diligent preventive measures, children experience risk of tooth decay or develop a cavity or misalignment issue. In these circumstances, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as dental fillings and mouth guards.
