Where to Start? When Should My Child First see a Dentist?
Many parents are unsure as to what they need to do to plan their child's first visit to a dentist. Generally though a child should see a dentist at about six months of ago or just after the eruption of the first tooth. This is an excellent way to learn about how to properly take care of children's teeth, identify any potential future problems and ensure future oral health. *Note: although baby teeth do eventually fall our these "baby teeth" are essential in creating the environment for the formation of health adult teeth.
The children’s dentists at Alpha Dental Care in Milton know how important primary teeth are and understand how anxious kids can be during their visits to the dentist. Our dentists will do their best to make your child feel safe and relaxed.
At Alpha Dental Care first visit is usually short and involves building relationship between your child and your dentist. Parents can sit in the room if they wish to or they can wait in the reception area during the part of the visit. Your child’s first dental visit also involves gentle exam of teeth and gums. Depending on the age of your child on the first visit X-rays may be taken to check the extent of the decay and how the permanent teeth are erupting with respect to the eruption pattern. We may clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride in case it is necessary. Most importantly we will review with you how to clean your child’s teeth.
Tips for your first visit
- Talk to your child about your dentist and how it’s going to be.
- Read a book with them about dental visit.
- Talk about how the visit will be like.
What to expect during first visit:
- Examination of teeth, mouth, gums.
- Diagnose/evaluate any adverse habits like thumb sucking.
- Showing/teaching your child how to clean teeth.
Much of what we do for you and your child when they visit our office is education. For example, going to bed with a bottle can bring to cavities as bottle with juice creates ideal conditions for bacteria. In addition, other sugary food such as candy sucked for a long time will have the same effect. Teeth should not be exposed to sugars long. Food, bacteria, saliva, acid are combined and make a substance called plaque. It has a destructive force. It sticks to the tooth, and acids start eating the enamel with time. This advice along with much more will be shared with you to help maintain optimal oral health.
