Most parents don’t take their children to the dentist until they are around two years old. But by that time, your child may have already developed some serious dental problems. It’s important to start taking your child to the dentist when they are six months old, or as soon as their first tooth appears.
There are a number of problems that can be solved by starting early with dental checkups. For example, if your child has tooth decay, it can be caught and treated before it becomes a more serious problem. Starting early also allows the dentist to spot any potential problems with teeth alignment and provide advice on how to prevent problems when the permanent teeth arrive.
So don’t wait until your child is two years old to take them to the dentist. Start early and make sure they have a healthy and confident smile for life.
