Health Tip: Prepare for Your Child's First Dental Visit

Here's what to expect

(HealthDay News) -- Baby's first dental visit is very important, even if there is only one tooth.

The American Dental Association explains what should happen at your child's first visit with the dentist:

  • A careful examination to look for any injuries, cavities or any other problems with your child's mouth or teeth.
  • An evaluation of your child's risk for tooth decay.
  • A thorough cleaning of your child's teeth, and suggestions on how to care for teeth daily.
  • A discussion of your child's use of pacifiers or thumb-sucking, as well as teething.
  • A plan for any needed treatments.
