Ensuring that your child receives dental care early in life is essential for the development of strong and healthy teeth and creates the foundation for a lifetime of proper oral hygiene. A child who learns to care for his/her teeth will be more likely to practice good hygiene habits later in life, which will result in fewer dental problems (and costs!).
Research shows that improper toothbrushing habits, poor food choices and an unbalanced diet during the first 2 years of a child’s life is highly related to tooth decay. Developing cavities in primary teeth further increases the risk of developing them in permanent teeth, which is why we recommend you bring in your child for their first children’s dental visit as early as one year of age.
