Birth to 2 Years
The first two years of your child’s life include monumental changes within their smile. By two years old, your child will likely have several primary teeth that need to be properly cared for and checked by a pediatric dentist. While we value the appearance of your child’s teeth, we also recognize their importance towards speech development and chewing function.
At Alora Pediatric Dentistry, we consider it a privilege to care for your child’s dental health. Our specialized pediatric services include comprehensive care for toddlers, from birth to 2 years. Remember that your child will need to come in for their first dental visit by their first birthday. We promise a comfortable, fun and highly rewarding experience!
Dental Care for Young Children
While it is true that baby teeth will eventually fall out, they still need to be well-maintained for optimal health. Not only does your child’s smile health impact their body health, but poorly maintained primary teeth can also influence the condition and eruption of permanent adult teeth. At Alora Pediatric Dentistry, we make it a priority to educate parents on the best ways to care for their child’s smile at home, as toddlers are not ready to take on oral hygiene responsibilities alone.
Dental care for toddlers and young children involves routine dental checkups at our office and smart dental habits at home. We encourage parents to brush their toddler’s teeth twice a day for two minutes each session. It is also important to limit sugary drinks and foods as much as possible, and avoid sending your baby or toddler to bed with a bottle. We want to be your partner in protecting your child’s smile right from the start.
