Toddlers should get regular dental check-ups
Thursday, December 10th, 2015
Parents want to do what’s best for their children in every situation. This is true when it comes to teeth. After all, parents love their child’s smile and want to ensure that all their kids develop positive oral hygiene habits that last throughout their life. But what is the best age to start bringing a child to the dentist? When should a child have their first check-up? Is there an age when it is too young to have a child see a dentist? These are questions that parents with young children often ask themselves.
Smiles On Seven Dental Centre in Markham, Ontario believes that children should start having regular dental check-ups as soon as their baby teeth grow in. Getting a toddler in front of a dentist is important. Dentists can check young children for a number of important things related to their teeth – from spacing and alignment to gum health and cavities. It is important to detect problems with teeth early in children so that corrective action can be taken. It’s also never too early to start teaching young children proper brushing and flossing techniques and the importance of caring for teeth. Parents who have toddlers and children who have a full set of teeth should visit Smiles On Seven Dental Centre and start regular check-ups. After all, the gift of a great smile lasts a lifetime.
