Advice/When should I bring my child to the dentist for the first time?

When should I bring my child to the dentist for the first time?

It is important that dental care starts early if you want your child to learn that dental visits are part of regular health care. First, you need to choose a dentist who suits his needs. It can be yours or one who specializes in child care (called a pediatric dentist).

Once you have chosen one, call their office to find out what age they prefer to receive children for the first time. The ADC encourages, within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or at the age of one, the evaluation of young children by a dentist.

It is important that the first visit is a pleasant experience for your child. This is one of the reasons why it is better to visit the dentist before a problem occurs. However, if you suspect a problem, take your child to the dentist immediately, regardless of age.

If you apprehend the dentist yourself, ask your spouse or another member of your family to arrange the appointment. If your child feels that you are not comfortable, so will he be. When you tell her about the dentist visit, explain what will happen without adding "don't be afraid" or "it won't hurt".

Make sure to start regular dental hygiene care at home early. Start by cleaning your child's mouth with a soft, damp piece of cloth before their teeth appear and continue with a soft toothbrush once the first one has grown. Limit the number of sweets you give your child and choose healthy foods from the start.
