When to Schedule Your Child’s First Dentist Appointment, Glastonbury, Connecticut

While it might be obvious when you should schedule a haircut for your little one, it requires proactive effort to make their first dentist appointment. The oral care experts at Nayaug Family Dental in South Glastonbury, CT, know it’s never too early to practice proper tooth and gum care. That’s why they recommend scheduling initial dentist appointments when your child’s first tooth appears or when they turn one, whichever comes first.

dentistSome parents might think it’s unnecessary to bring a child to the dentist at such an early age, but the oral care habits they establish early in life will help youngsters maintain proper oral hygiene habits in the future. Plus, one of the most important reasons to schedule your baby’s first appointment is to get them accustomed with the family dentist and regular checkups. Establishing familiarity through regular trips to a dental professional will make your child more comfortable when it comes time for teeth cleaning or dental X-rays.

In addition to familiarizing your little one with proper oral hygiene practices, scheduling dental visits early in a child’s life will help you care for their teeth and prepare for each coming stage of oral development. With regular trips to the dentist, parents can discuss ways to prevent tooth decay caused by nursing and bottle feeding. They can also learn the proper way to brush and floss baby teeth, in addition to the best oral hygiene products for little mouths.

Nayaug Family Dental caters to patients of all ages, even babies. Start your child’s oral well-being off right by making an appointment with a family dentist who provides a relaxing and professional environment. Visit their website to see their full list of services—including veneers and emergency dental care. You can also call the office at (860) 633-6167 to schedule an appointment today.
