Children's Dental Health-Start them early
- At Young Family Dentistry, Dr. Young recommends a first dentist visit for children at 1 year of age, or sooner if anything extraordinary is noted. Establishing regular visits at a
young age saves your child from traumatic dental experiences. In addition, this routine has been proven to improve the health and stability of adult teeth.
- Proper oral hygiene habits are learned early. As soon as your toddler can manage a toothbrush (24-30 months), supervised brushing instructions can create beneficial habits that last
- Children under 6 should be supervised at all times as swallowing toothpaste can be harmful.
