DO BABY TEETH REALLY MATTER?
Absolutely! Baby (or primary) teeth help maintain good nutrition with chewing, affect speech development and can guide how permanent teeth erupt.
WHEN SHOULD I TAKE MY BABY TO THE DENTIST?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentist advises a child's first dental visit is before 12 months of age or within 6 months of when the first tooth appears.
WHY DOES A PEDIATRIC DENTIST MATTER?
Establishing a positive relationship with a pediatric dentist as a child cultivates a lifetime of good oral health and hygiene. Creating an early childhood memory of the dentist as fun and safe can affect dental health and habits for a lifetime. We use special kid-sized equipment and tools for the perfect fit. Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. They dedicate entire careers to caring for little teeth and mouths, starting with two or more years of specialized pediatric dental training that focuses on infants, adolescents, and individuals with special needs.
