It’s convenient, and it makes access to family dentistry in Liverpool, NY, that much easier.

When You Should Schedule a First Visit

If you’re a new parent, understanding how to approach oral healthcare for an infant can be daunting. Before your baby’s first birthday, you can clean the gums gently with a damp cloth to keep them healthy. Around the time of that first birthday, you should make an appointment to come in for an initial exam. That exam provides you with a few resources every parent should have:

  • Answers to questions you have about developmental oral hygiene during teething and early childhood.
  • Instruction for you and your child about brushing, flossing, and other important aspects of maintaining a healthy smile.
  • The visit builds familiarity with the dentist’s office, making it an easier place for a child to feel comfortable.
  • Your initial exam includes a check-up for signs of early tooth decay and other problems that can set in during toddlerhood, making early treatment easier.
