When Should My Child See a Dentist for the First Time?
According to the American Association of Pediatric Dentists, it’s strongly recommended that children have their first dental checkup shortly after their first tooth erupts or by the time they turn one year old. While it may seem early, it’s essential to make sure your little one’s smile is developing correctly, and that they don’t have any problems.
If your child uses a pacifier or drinks from a bottle, these habits can lead to difficulties in tooth growth and development. For that reason, it’s incredibly important to schedule routine checkups so we can see how the teeth are coming in and recommend any possible changes to your child’s at-home dental care.

HealthyStart™ is a system of oral appliances that influences the growth and development of a child’s jaw and teeth. They’re designed to treat the root cause of Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) in children, a condition that interferes with a child’s ability to breathe properly during the night.
Not only does it help address multiple orthodontic and growth concerns, but it can assist in changing bad habits like thumb-sucking and pacifier use as well. The HealthyStart™ appliance is FDA-approved and free of BPA, silicone, or latex. It’s safe, effective, painless, and non-invasive – perfect for kids!
If your child has any of the following, they may be a good candidate for the HealthyStart™ system:
- Poor muscle ton in the face and tongue
- Narrow, high palate
- Reversed lower jaw
- Opening between the front upper and lower teeth
