At Carolina Oaks Dental Care, we make dental visits fun and enjoyable for kids. We know that by helping little ones create positive associations with dentistry, they’ll be more likely to keep up with routine care throughout their lives.

When Should I Start Taking My Child To The Dentist?

After the first tooth starts to erupt, children should have routine visits to the dentist. This is usually around six months or so. The primary teeth require special care to keep them healthy and strong and create a healthy pathway for the adult teeth to erupt.

Primary teeth will assist in allowing healthy diets and eating routines, create the proper structure for speech development, and provide a healthy start for the permanent teeth. Permanent teeth, or adult teeth, start to show up around the age of 6 or 7 and need strong and healthy roots for continued success.

How Many Times A Year Should My Child See The Dentist?

Like adults, children will need to regularly see their dentist in Clemson twice a year. These visits will consist of regular examinations and a dental cleaning. Routine exams and cleanings can catch early decay, prevent damage, and provide opportunities to make early corrections to flawed or damaged teeth. Every six months – stop in and see the gentle and fun team of dental experts at Carolina Oaks Dental Care. Your kids will love coming here!
