Infant Dentistry

Dr. Carlson Provide Infant dentistry in Lake Stevens, WA

What Is Infant Dentistry?

You might think dentistry is only for people who’ve actually grown in a full set of teeth, but that isn’t the case! The ADA actually recommends that children begin receiving dental care as soon as their first tooth shows up, or at least by their first birthday. Infant dentistry includes assessing the baby’s mouth to make sure everything is healthy and giving parents advice on taking care of their baby’s teeth and gums.

Why Is Infant Dentistry So Important?

As soon as teeth appear, they are vulnerable to the possibility of cavities. It’s crucial to keep baby teeth healthy so that the child can chew effectively, speak clearly, and feel comfortable, and baby teeth also hold the places for their adult counterparts. Dental professionals like Dr. Carlson will help you keep your baby’s teeth healthy and happy.
