In our blog this week, we want to teach you about the importance of infant oral health care. In the past, many people believed that baby teeth were not important because adult teeth eventually replaced them. Recent research suggests that baby teeth are important contributors to the health and function of the adult dentition. The American Dental Association currently recommends that children see a dentist by the time their first tooth erupts or before they turn 1 year old, whichever event happens first. Once the first tooth erupts, it is important to maintain the health of the dentition with dental visits every 6 months. If a child has turned 1 and does not have any teeth yet, it is important for that child to visit the dentist to ensure that dental development is taking place normally.

We are here today to talk about the importance of establishing a positive relationship between your child and their dentist at an early age. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the recommended age that a child should first see a dentist is before their first birthday. We like to recommend that our patients bring their children to the dentist when their first tooth comes in or by their first birthday—whichever comes first. At Ponte Vedra Complete Dentistry, we are committed to our patients and want them to feel as comfortable as possible, no matter how young they are. We are also dedicated to educating our patients on some of the most important topics related to the field of dentistry. One way that we continually educate our patients is with our blog. Today, we are going to answer some frequently asked questions about children’s oral health and also provide some tips on supporting your child during their dental appointments. We hope that you find this blog entry useful and informative. If you still have unanswered questions, however, please feel free to contact us at any time electronically or call (904)285-7711.
