When should children start seeing a Dentist?
At Sandstone Point Dental, we suggest you start bringing your child in for a check up from the age of 3. By this age, most children have all of their baby or milk teeth, and these teeth, like adult teeth, are susceptible to decay.
Usually, this first appointment will be for a quick ride in the dental chair and if willing, a quick look in their mouth with a dental mirror. This initial quick appointment helps your child become familiar with the sights, sounds and smells at the dentist, and well as meet our friendly team. With this approach, future appointments won’t be as daunting.
Prevention is better than cure, and often, a lost or removed baby tooth can result in spacing issues for adult teeth in the future.
