Teaching your child how to care for their teeth is an important part of parenthood. The dental hygiene habits you instill in them now will have a lasting impact on how they take care of their teeth in adulthood. There are a number of dental concerns that can start as early as 12 months old such as pacifier use and thumb sucking. The first step you can take toward helping your child maintain good oral health is finding a family dentist and scheduling an exam when they reach their first birthday.
