Children’s Dentistry in Sugar Land, TX

Having positive dental habits during childhood help set the foundations for good oral health throughout adulthood. By teaching children about dental hygiene habits at an early age, parents, and caregivers and prepare them for good oral health that will last a lifetime. Your child’s first visit to the children’s dentist should be around six months of age. This is about the time when his or her first baby teeth should be beginning to erupt.

It is very important to make your child’s visits to the dentist an exciting and fun experience for them. Regular dental check-ups at a young age can help establish good oral health care practices early on.

Tips to prepare your child for their first dental visit:

  • Take your child for a preview of the office.
  • Read books about going to the dentist with them.
  • Talk about what the dentist will be doing during their first visit.
  • Speak positively about your own dental experiences.
