Children’s Dentistry

Child Dental Care in Greer, SC

Dental hygiene should begin when your child is a baby. Starting your children on an oral hygiene routine from an early age will go a long way in ensuring healthier teeth and gums throughout their lives. Part of this involves scheduling regular visits to a dentist. At Carraway Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we are a family dental office with a wealth of experience in both adult and children’s dentistry.

Your child’s first dental appointment should take place within six months of the first tooth coming out, but no later than their first birthday. Dental visits should start early because your child can get cavities as soon as they have teeth. However, the first cleaning typically takes place a little later, between 12 and 36 months, after most of the baby teeth have appeared. Right from the first dental checkup, you should work with an experienced children’s dentist.
