What is an Age One Dental Visit?

A baby typically begins to grow teeth between 6 and 12 months of age. As a good rule of thumb, plan on bringing your child to a pediatric dentist near Wayland, MA before their first birthday. This is what we call the age one dental visit

Did you know?

Tooth decay can begin shortly after the teeth come into your child’s mouth. This is called “baby bottle tooth decay.” And that the use of a pacifier and thumb sucking inhibit proper jaw growth and development. 

What are the benefits of taking your child to an age one dental visit?

 At the age one dental visit we are able to focus on early:

·       detection
