Early visits to the dentist reinforce good dental health throughout one’s life–your teeth are a good barometer of your overall health! Regular visits to the dentist teach proper techniques and care of one’s teeth, like brushing and flossing.
In addition to checkups, there are several reasons to call the dentist:
-early childhood caries (“E.C.C.”), also known as tooth decay on a baby’s teeth from putting them to bed with bottles or sippy cups of milk or juice
-accidents or traumatic injuries
-pain associated with cavities
