I'm getting ready to take my kids to the dentist for the first time.how old were your kids the first time they went to the dentist?


Apparently my 5 yr old has been grinding his front teeth so bad he ground them down to the nerve and it was making it painful to eat. Ugh!
He got fillings on them. Hopefully we can fix this grinding habit.


They were both very well behaved!:)

IDK, they were toddlers.  So many years ago.

I'd have to say 3 for my oldest because my youngest was a tiny baby the first time that I took my oldest son and they are 3 years apart in age.

Taking my 3 year old today for the first time. Seems like every dentist has a different recommendation for when they should go...

she was 2.5 yrs old .  It is recommended first tooth and/or when they turn 1 yr old.   She went to a pediatric dentist.  They did visual exams and cleanings until 4 yrs old then she got xrays and her first major procedure.

 My kids were 2 or 3 when they had their first official check ups, but they had their teeth looked at from the time they first had teeth-- my dad is their dentist. lol He used to have a dental office in their old house so making appointments for them at those early ages was easy and they had no fear.
