As a parent, you’re concerned with the health of your younger children. But one aspect of their health that’s often overlooked is their oral health.
So in an effort to help educate parents about oral health for their kids, our team here at Safari Dental in Bryan, Texas put this piece together to answer important questions.
When should my kids see the dentist?
It’s recommended that children visit the dentist either as soon as their first tooth appears or by their first birthday – whichever comes first. By visiting Dr. Manshadi and Dr. Dustin this early, you can get a jumpstart on giving your kids the best oral health possible, as well as ensuring that their baby teeth are healthy and functioning properly.
Why do they need to come in so early?
The sooner you bring your kids in to see the doctor, the easier it is to help them establish good oral health routines they can carry with them for the rest of their lives. Additionally, bringing them in early allows Dr. Manshadi and Dr. Dustin to ensure the teeth are healthy, free of cavities, and help your children feel comfortable in the dentist’s office. This can eliminate a lot of the anxiety usually associated with a dental visit for your children.
If you have younger children who need to come see the dentist, don’t wait any longer. Call us today at (979) 985-3093 to schedule an appointment and get your kids on the right track to great oral health.
