Your Child's First Visit
Infants should be seen by a dentist after the first six months of age or at minimum by the child's first birthday. By this time, the baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are beginning to erupt and it is a critical time to spot any problems before they become big concerns.
Creating Early Positive Dental Experiences
At Saddletowne Dental, we're committed to helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments so they can maintain good oral health today and into adulthood. We will go at your child's pace, take breaks if they get overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process.
Visiting the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when your child is young will help preserve the primary (baby) teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by the permanent (adult) teeth. During each appointment, your dentist or hygienist will review proper oral hygiene techniques with your child to ensure that their smile is getting the proper care at home.
Our dentists also perform frenectomies for babies and children when the frenum in the mouth is restricting oral function, commonly referred to as tongue-tied or lip-tied.
