According to the American Academy of Pediatrics and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), children should see a dentist annually or bi-annually starting within six months of the first tooth appearance.
You can bring your infant to ABC Dental as soon as the first tooth erupts to get a head start on great oral health!
A Perfect Relationship
Don’t just see a dentist when there’s an emergency. This should be a fruitful, ongoing relationship in order to teach oral hygiene and spot red flags before they get out of control. The AAPD urges families to establish a “dental home,” where all their questions and concerns can be addressed. For residents in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, ABC Dental fits the bill perfectly.
We can begin building positive connections with your little one, so they will love coming to the dentist. This builds a foundation for great oral health as they grow older.
Regular checkups can spot tooth decay early, identify and change bad habits (such as tooth grinding), and offer opportunities to ensure the best at-home oral hygiene is being followed.
There are numerous issues which plague children such as pacifier habits, thumb sucking, injuries, and dietary issues that impact tooth development. We can help your little one avoid long-term troubles from those events or habits.
Erupting teeth can grow in crooked and shift other teeth, become impacted, or become damaged. Our dentists have the training and background to address unique oral issues that infants face.
You wouldn’t take your child to an adult doctor or enroll them in an adult swim class, would you? Special ”kids only” professionals have what it takes to keep your precious little one as safe and healthy as possible.
