Your baby’s first visit to Polar Dental will allow your dentist to monitor and evaluate the development of the facial bone and teeth and to identify hidden signs of possible decay.
We will also discuss with you tips on how you can best care for your child’s developing smile. The first tooth should emerge somewhere between six to twelve months. When this happens, you may gently begin brushing the tooth with an appropriate sized soft bristled brush and a pea-sized amount of children’s toothpaste. Encourage your children to brush their teeth independently once there have acquired the coordination to do so.
