Many parents are uncertain about whether the child is old enough to see the dentist. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry advises that the first visit of an infant should be when the first tooth erupts-at least two years old. From there on the dentist will continue to prescribe the frequency of visits to be observed by the parents.
Which Dentist Should I Go to?
Definitely, a family dentist will help give you a quick rundown of how to care for your child’s teeth and whether there are any urgent problems to be discussed. To take your child to a pediatric dentist, though, is safest.
