Age One Dental Visit

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a child’s first checkup should occur by age one. Surprised? You shouldn’t be! Even though there may only be a few baby teeth visible at that age, there are plenty of things to start working on — including the development of healthy habits that will make future visits to the dentist far more pleasurable.

Space Maintainers

Your child’s little baby teeth have some big responsibilities, including hold space for the adult teeth that will eventually push them out. If your child loses a tooth prematurely, there’s a dental appliance that can be used to hold the space open for the permanent tooth that is meant to fill it.

Teething

Your baby’s first tooth can be an exciting and stressful event. Teething is different for each baby, and need not be painful at all; plus, there are steps you can take to make the process easier for your baby — and yourself.

Thumb Sucking

Sucking on a thumb or finger is a completely normal habit that some babies develop even before they’re born. It’s soothing for the child, but if sucking habits go on much past the age of 3, however, it’s possible that bite problems may arise.
