First Visit – Madisonville LA
When & What Is My Child’s First “Regular” Visit?
The first “regular” dental visit should be no later than your child’s first birthday. (The AAPD recommends that your child should be seen within 6 months of their first tooth erupting or by their 1st birthday.) We will gently examine your child’s teeth and gums. X-rays may be taken to reveal decay and check on the progress of your child’s permanent teeth under the gums. We may clean your child’s teeth and apply topical fluoride to help protect the teeth against decay. We will make sure your child is receiving adequate fluoride at home. Most important of all, we will review with you how to clean and care for your child’s teeth.
