Dental Care For Your Baby in McKinney, TX

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends the first dental visit no later than the child’s first birthday, or when the first tooth appears. Normal baby (primary) teeth eruption timing: teeth-eruption-timing

Recommendations:

  • See your dentist every 6 months for routine check-ups and cleanings.
  • Starting at birth, clean your child’s gums with a soft infant toothbrush or cloth and water.
  • As soon as the teeth begin to appear, start brushing twice daily using infant toothpaste and a soft, age- appropriate sized toothbrush.
  • You may switch to fluoride toothpaste once your child can spit it out rather than swallow it. If you choose to use fluoride toothpaste, use a very small amount (size of a grain of rice). Fluoride ingested in high doses can be dangerous.
  • Flossing is necessary as soon as the teeth are in contact with one another, as early as age 2. Many parents prefer using pre-strung flossers which are flavored and coated with fluoride.

  • I love this place.  The dentist is great but so is the staff and the ability to watch a movie while getting your teeth cleaned is a perk....My daughter loves to go in every month to get new colors for her bands.
    —Karen Vazquez
