What age should I bring my child to the dentist?

Though your child is born with fully-formed baby teeth, they won't erupt through their gums until around their first birthday. This growth pattern is why many pediatricians recommend you should bring your child to the dentist after their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. This initial visit gives our pediatric dentist in St. Paul the opportunity to examine your child's development.

One thing we also check for is nursing bottle decay, caused when a child goes to sleep with a bottle of milk, juice, or even by nursing. This can cause early tooth decay in their emerging baby teeth, which can cause problems. Therefore, we encourage parents only to use clear water in a child's bottle as they go to sleep.

Other Ages to Visit Your Children Dentist in 55116

While they are young, we prefer that your child accompany you to regular dental appointments. This allows us to meet them and get acquainted while they can see our St. Paul dentist's office as a normal and non-threatening place. This positive relationship with their dental care will benefit them for a lifetime. Between one and three years, we will also help you establish an excellent at-home routine for brushing and flossing between dental visits.

We will offer preventive treatments for older children, such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants. A consistent approach to dental care, starting with first visits and preventive follow-ups, will help your children avoid issues like tooth cavities and other needs for intervention. Our goal is to help you provide each of your children with a lifetime of healthy smiles.
