COVID-19 has changed some of our hygiene habits forever.
Here are some good hygiene habits to keep up not only right now in quarantine-mode but when you get back to normal public life.
Here at Northwest Family Dental, we are often asked by our clients about the right time to bring their kids for their very first dental check-up. It is safe to say that the right age would be between six months to two years old, just when your child’s first teeth are appearing.
Many parents think that a child doesn’t have to worry about going to the dentist until his/her baby teeth are nearly gone and the permanent ones are starting to develop. We can say for a fact that this is inadvisable. Putting off your child’s first dentist appointment past the age of two will increase the risk of having their first cavity as well — and getting treated for tooth decay is not the best way to introduce the dentist to a child.
