Your child’s first set of teeth , the milk teeth , are extremely important.Strong , healthy primary teeth help your child chew food easily , learn to speak clearly and look good . Also your child’s general health can be affected if diseased and broken teeth are not treated properly.
Ideally, it is best to take your child to dentist when he/ she is 6-12 months of age. This allows the dentist to prevent and anticipate problems rather than treat them.
If you bring your child at age of 1, your child will gradually learn that a dental visit is not a fear provoking experience.
There is no set rule . It is generally recommended that children visit the dentist every six months because children’s dental needs differ , your dentist is best able to suggest a schedule of visits for your child.
