4 Reasons To Make Sure Your Child Sees A Dentist

Categories: Dental Health

Taylorsville family dentist

The American Dental Association recommends that a child’s first visit to a dentist should be when their first tooth appears or before their 1st birthday, whichever is first. The team at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS agrees with that recommendation. Serving the Murray, Salt Lake City and Sandy Utah area, we represent the best-quality dental care in the Salt Lake Valley.

4 Reasons for Dental Visit by 1

  1. Twelve months of age happens to be about the time when a little one’s first teeth tend erupt. Once those teeth are out, it’s time to get them looked at by a professional.
  2. One of the important things your dentist will do at this visit will be to check those young teeth and make sure they’re cavity free. Topical fluoride may also be applied.
  3. Visiting the dentist at a young age is a great way to help your child get used to the dentist’s office. This will help them to be more at ease with the dentist as they grow older.
  4. Visiting the dentist also helps parents enlist the help of other adults in establishing good dental habits in their children.

If your child is nervous about visiting the dentist, you might want to bring them for a short tour of our office beforehand. They can meet our friendly staff and learn what to expect when they come in for their exam.
