When should kids visit the dentist for the first time?

A dentist can ensure your children’s mouths stay healthy throughout their lives. The sooner you can bring them in, the healthier their mouths will be. 

According to the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics, every child should get a dental checkup by age 1, or as soon as their first tooth comes in.

Why should your child see an orthodontist?

Orthodontics may straighten crooked teeth and improve your bite by correcting a misaligned jaw. 

Orthodontic concerns need to be addressed during childhood or adolescence to achieve the best results. Once your child’s face and jaws have finished growing, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results.

Margaret Culotta-Norton, DDS, PC provides orthodontic services, too, so you can check that off your list of concerns. 

For added convenience, Margaret Culotta-Norton, DDS, PC has office hours into the early evening, so your child doesn’t need to miss school for dental or orthodontic appointments.
