The best time to start your child’s visits to the dentist is with the emergence of her first tooth. A quick check-up will reveal whether there are any systemic issues or abnormalities in the baby teeth. Also starting the visits early helps create a trusting relationship so your child feels confident and comfortable with his dentist as well as helps establish good early oral hygiene habits. The child’s parents will also receive information about caring for their child’s teeth such as proper brushing technique or how to avoid cavities, for example, by not letting their toddler go to sleep with a bottle containing milk or juice, which is one of the primary causes of dental caries in young children.
