If you have a toddler who has not visited a dentist, we urge you to make an appointment today by calling Harris Dental at 480-428-0040 .
The the best time to start dental check-ups for young children is when their teeth first erupt. This may seem a bit premature, however it is the best way to start your son or daughter on the pathway to lifelong oral health.
Your dentist can evaluate the condition of your child’s teeth before problems emerge or existing issues get worse. It’s also helpful for parents to get a review of proper oral hygiene for young children. You can also learn about preventative measures such as sealants and fluoride supplements.
My name is Dr. Harris of Harris Dental. The American Academy of Pediatrics counsels that parents begin children’s dentist visits before the third birthday. If you have questions about childrens’ dentistry, please give us a call at Harris Dental.
Children with a higher risk of dental problems should be given a dental examination as early as possible. Here are some of the risk factors:
- Sleeping with a bottle
- Drinking juice often during the day
- Abnormal tooth development
- Thumb sucking
- Tooth grinding
- A mother with substantial tooth decay
- Other physical ailments
