Your baby’s first year is full of milestones: holding their bottle, rolling over, and their first trip to the pediatric dentist. Within four months those pearly whites should start appearing, and the ADA suggests that you bring those bundles of joy to the dentist at least six months after that first incisor breaks through.
If your baby doesn’t have all his or her teeth yet you may think this is a bit early, but your baby’s first trip to the dentist is crucial in getting everyone comfortable with regular trips. Your pediatric dentist will let you know if your baby is at risk of tooth decay, discuss their pacifier and thumb sucking habits, and check for any early cavities.
This first trip to the dentist should be an exciting outing for you and baby, so make your appointment early when your child is rested. Call your pediatric dentist in Orlando with any questions or concerns. We’re excited to meet your child and see how those chompers are moving along.
