American Academy of pediatric dentistry recommends that all children should see the dentist for the first time by their first birthdays. Most babies don’t start getting their teeth until around the age of six months, however, proper dental care is still important. The purpose of this visit is to establish a positive relationship with your child and to evaluate his/her dental health.

At Lawrenceville pediatric dentistry, we perform dental exams on young children around their first birthday to ensure their teeth and gums look healthy, and everything is developing on schedule. Adequate spacing between primary is very crucial. Without adequate spacing, permanent teeth may not develop properly, and there is a higher likelihood that your child will need braces down the road.
