Baby’s First Dental Cleaning

Baby’s First Dental Cleaning

Did you know that the first dental cleaning is a milestone in your child’s oral health? 

The first dental cleaning can help maintain healthy teeth and prevent decay and tooth loss later in life. Although a lot of people and dentist offices think that children are too young to go to the dentist your pediatric dentist will tell you differently.

This is why a pediatric dentist is better suited to clean your child’s teeth. Though your child should begin visiting the pediatric dentist around the age of 1, the first dental cleaning will most likely occur a bit later, when more or all of your toddler’s teeth have developed.

The initial cleaning is often performed between the ages of 12 and 36 months. Regular checkups throughout this period will help the dentist to detect and remove plaque and tartar buildup before it becomes a problem.

Lifetime of Oral Health

Setting up your child for a lifetime of good dental and oral health is especially crucial when you realize that children with poor oral health don’t enjoy school and do worse academically than those with strong oral health. As the parent, your first task is to make the initial appointment enjoyable rather than stuffy and stiff.

Since your child will be modeling their behavior after you, be cheery and optimistic. Bring your child’s favorite play doll or toy with you to provide them comfort and a sense of security.
