It’s a question that many parents debate: When should I take my child in for their first dental appointment? The answer may be a little earlier than you think. The American Dental Association recommends that a child sees a dentist around twelve months of age. At Kernagis Dental Excellence in Tampa, our thinking is in line with that.
Twelve months happens to be about the time when the first teeth start coming in. Some parents may wonder why dental visits are needed so early in their child’s life. Not only will we those incoming teeth are straight and healthy, it’s also important for small children to get used to seeing the dentist.
Starting early dental visits will mean that later in life your Tampa child is less likely to require braces or other restorative or cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental implants.
