When Should I Take My Child to a Children's Dentist in Chandler?

Many parents have no idea when they should start taking their children to see the dentist. Frequently, parents don’t believe that baby teeth are important and, therefore, wait until the child’s adult teeth start coming in to make that first visit. It is worth noting, however, that it is recommended that you take your kids to a children’s dentist in Chandler much sooner than that to ensure that their teeth and gums are developing properly.

 

The First Visit

As a general rule, your young ones should have their first visit to a children’s dentist in Chandler within six months of the appearance of their first tooth or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. This first visit helps the dentist to establish a healthy and positive relationship with your child, alleviating some fear of the dentist along the way. The dentist can also start fighting against tooth decay when the child is very young, setting him up for a lifetime of healthy teeth.

 

Other Visits

After this first visit, the dentist will recommend that you return at regular intervals. The frequency of these appointments will depend on how the child’s teeth are developing. Children who the dentist determines are at a higher risk of developing tooth decay will be asked to come in more frequently than others. At the very least, you should plan to visit the dentist at least once every six months with your child.

 

Choosing a Dentist

Going with a pediatric dentist will make these visits easier your child, since the dentist is specially trained to deal with children and their specific dental needs. Kids First Pediatric Dentistry is one such location in Chandler, Arizona that can create a positive experience for your child. You can make an appointment for your child by calling them at (480) 802-2200.
