Pediatric Dentistry in Aurora, IL
A lifetime of healthy smiles starts with great dental habits and routines at a young age. Getting your child comfortable with visiting the dentist and in the habit of taking care of their teeth at home is a great way to ensure they have a great smile for life.
A common question we get asked from parents about their children’s oral health is, “when should I bring my child in for their first dental cleaning and checkup?” It’s a great question and, at 1st Family Dental, we recommend all children have their first dental visit around their first birthday, or within six months of receiving their first tooth. Their first dental visit is the first step in helping children get comfortable at the dentist office and begin getting used to having their teeth checked and cleaned.
