We recommend planning your baby’s first dental visit between 6 months and 2 years. The earlier the best, so they can begin to be comfortable in the dentist chair and develop good health habits.
When new baby teeth are breaking through, rub the baby’s teeth and gums with a pad of gauze or a washcloth after mealtimes. Get your child used to the feeling of clean teeth. This also stimulates the gums and helps the baby teeth to break through a little more comfortably.
