The first few teeth that come in need to be taken care of, and this means establishing good dental hygiene habits. A dentist visit with an infant specialist can prevent problems before they start down the line.
Baby’s first dental exam should happen before the age of two months because they are best able to be detected and treated if done early and help to establish good oral health habits for a lifetime.
Baby teeth contain plaque which begins to build up around 6 months old, so it is important to get a regular dental exam as soon as possible.
