Your Child's First Visit
Babies should see a dentist after they turn six months of age, or by their first birthday at the latest. By this point, baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are starting to emerge. It is a critical time to spot any problems before they develop into larger issues.
Dental Services for Kids
The services at Bay Dental Group can be customized to meet your child's oral health needs and keep their smile healthy.
In your child's early years, seeing their dentist for regular exams and cleanings will help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out naturally and be replaced by permanent teeth. During each appointment, we will review proper oral hygiene techniques to ensure your child's smile is receiving the proper care at home.
Has your child developed a cavity, or are they at risk of decay? Perhaps they are experiencing misalignment issues. If this is the case, your dentist may recommend restorative treatments such as dental fillings or mouth guards.
