At Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we think a child’s first visit to the dentist should be enjoyable and positive. The more you and your child know about the first visit, the better you will feel. Children are not born with a fear of the dentist, but they can fear the unknown. At Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, Drs. Styrt and Job and our team make a practice of using pleasant, non-frightening, simple words to describe your child’s first dental visit and treatment. We want you and your child to feel at ease from the moment you walk through the door.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, or AAPD, children should visit the dentist by their first birthday. It is important that your child’s newly-erupted teeth (erupting at 6-12 months of age) receive proper dental care and benefit from proper oral hygiene habits right from the beginning. Your child’s first tooth erupts between ages 6-12 months and the remainder of their 20 primary or “baby” teeth typically erupt by age 3.
