Oral Health for Kids

Did you know cavities can form as soon as your tooth erupts? We recommend bringing your child for their first visit once they are 12 months old or six months after their first tooth erupts. Healthy baby teeth are important as they:

  • Assist in speech development
  • Prevent pain and discomfort
  • Help with chewing
  • Maintain space in the jaw for permanent teeth
  • Improves self-esteem

Regular cleanings and check-ups will help your child maintain healthy teeth. Frequent visits when they’re young can help your child get used to seeing the dentist. It’s essential to educate your child on the importance of oral health to prevent cavities and keep their smile healthy.
