From immunizations to finding the right formula for your new baby, ensuring that you’re on top of all your young child’s health needs is quite a challenge. It’s easy to overlook one of the most important parts of your baby’s health – their oral health.

If you want your child to have the best oral health possible, you should take them to the dentist as soon their first tooth appears, or around their first birthday – whichever occurs first. Our team here at Fountains Family Dental Center in Chandler, Arizona has the knowledge to help you get your baby on the track to great oral health.

Promotes good oral health

Fluoride is one of the most beneficial additives to your child’s diet that can aid in great oral health – and it’s been proven by the American Dental Association to be most efficacious on younger teeth. Our dentist will likely prescribe a fluoride supplement if your baby isn’t getting enough already.

Makes the dentist a normal part of life

By far the best advantage of going to the dentist early on in life is that it makes dental visits seems an ordinary, normal event. If you wait too long to take your kids to the dentist, they’ll likely put up quite a fuss before going. However, taking them early on in life instills in them the fact that there’s nothing to fear about a dental visit.

Dental visits for your baby are important and shouldn’t be overlooked. Call us today at 480-359-1483 to schedule an appointment.
