Prepare Your Child for a Lifetime of Healthy Smiles
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children see a dentist within six months of their first tooth erupting or by age one. But, the average age parents are actually taking their child to the dentist is 2.6.
Taking your baby to a dentist at an early age does more than just promote a healthy smile and instill good habits. It can also:
- Help make sure your child is chewing correctly.
- Determine if your child’s mouth will have enough space for permanent teeth.
- Identify issues that could affect speech development.
In addition, when your child sees a dentist at an early age, you’ll know when the right time is to bring them to an orthodontist. At GVR Dental and Orthodontics, we have a dentist and orthodontist on our team, who will work together to create a comprehensive orthodontic treatment plan for your child.
