The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) all recommend establishing a "Dental Home" for your child by their first birthday.
This visit is important to familiarize patients and parents with our office. Home care measures will be reviewed to help PREVENT future dental problems.
Why We Treat Baby Teeth
- Primary (baby) teeth have nerves which means that cavities can lead to pain and infection.
- Early loss of baby teeth, due to disease or improper habits, can lead to improper alignment of your permanent teeth.
- Every child deserves a healthy smile.
Your child will enjoy healthy dental habits when they use these Motivational Charts. Encourage regular brushing or help them break the thumbsucking habit.
