When should I schedule my child’s first dental appointment?
You should schedule your child’s first dental appointment after the eruption of their first tooth, or at least by their first birthday. We will provide them with a gentle cleaning and examine their mouth for proper development.
Bringing your child to the dentist as soon as possible will go a long way in setting them up for a lifetime of good oral hygiene habits. By introducing your child to the dental chair early, you are showing them that visiting the dentist can be comfortable. Being there with them while they get checkups will help teach them the importance of taking care of their oral health.
How can I help my child prepare for their first dental appointment?
The best thing you can do for your child’s first dental appointment is to positively reinforce the experience. There’s no need to warn them about loud noises or needles. During their first dental visit, we will take the time to explain our processes and procedures with kid-friendly terminology. We will fully inform them, but never overwhelm or frighten them.
What kind of sedation is used in pediatric dentistry?
The sedation used in pediatric dentistry is typically nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas. This is a mild sedative that will keep your child awake, but relaxed throughout their procedure. It is extremely safe, and a very mellow sedative.
What is the main goal of Family Dentistry?
The main goal of family dentistry is to help patients and their families maintain healthy gums and teeth. Our goal is to help you and your family through your oral health journey, teaching techniques to help better maintain your oral health.
How often should a child’s teeth be checked by the dentist?
On average, children’s teeth should be examined every 6-12 months to ensure that they are taking proper care of their teeth, and that their teeth are growing at a healthy rate. During examinations we also thoroughly clean teeth, and teach children techniques to keep up with their oral care.
Can I schedule a dental appointment for me and my child at the same time?
We will do the best we can to schedule your family’s appointments within a similar time frame to prevent many trips to our family dental office. Talk with our office staff and they will work with you to schedule the best time for your family’s dental appointments.
