The dentists at Family Dental of Lincoln see and treat children of all ages! The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child see a dentist on or after his first birthday. To help your child prepare for their first visit to the dentist, try the following approaches:
- Take time every day to look inside your child’s mouth. Talk about his teeth and count the ones that have come in already.
- Get your child used to dental care by regularly brushing your child’s teeth using a soft bristled brush to remove plaque.
- Purchase a couple of books about dental visits for a child between the ages of two to three years old.
Routine check-ups should be scheduled every six months to maintain proper dental health for children of all ages.
