Family Dentistry in Maine
Not only are dental services important for adults, but they’re extremely important for children. The dentists at our family dentistry office are compassionate and caring and it shows! We understand dental visits can be a stressful time for your child. We are here to calm their nerves and show them the dentist isn’t so scary! Making sure your child gets the care they deserve all starts with understanding why they need it in the first place.
Why the Dentist Is So Important for Your Child
Did you know that your child’s first dental visit should be when their first tooth emerges or by their first birthday? This first dental check-up is to ensure your child isn’t showing signs of early gum or tooth decay. These routine check-ups can help prevent dental issues that are actually easily avoidable. If your baby has their first tooth popping up, it may be time to schedule an appointment with our caring dentists at our family dentistry in Maine.
After their first dental visit, they should have regular check-ups to continue the prevention of oral issues. As your child grows older, we can also monitor the development of their mouth. Another big bonus to starting your child at the dentist early on in their life is that they get used to it! The dentist can be a scary environment but when the dentist is a regular routine, the chances of them developing dental phobias are reduced. That means less stress for you and your child.
