Children need to develop good oral hygiene habits as soon as their first teeth start coming in. You can make sure that your infant receives the necessary dental care by getting them checked during a dentist visit with an infant dental specialist.
An infant’s first dental exam should happen before the age of two months because this is when any potential problems can be detected and treated early to establish good oral health habits for a lifetime.
Plaque begins building on baby teeth around six month old, which is why it is important to have a regular dental exam right away.

When children are teething, they may drool and become fussy and may get a low fever. They might also chew on everything around them while their teeth push through. This is totally normal for infants, but in the event that you are anxious or concerned, we encourage you to give our office a call and allow us to look into any potential problems.
