First Dental Visit: What to Expect
We typically suggest bringing your child for their first dental visit around age 3. It is as much a time for us to get to know your child as it is to provide treatment. We want it to be the beginning of a great relationship with our dentists!
Upon their first visit, dental treatment may include:
- A gentle examination of your child’s teeth and gums
- Digital X-rays so we can look for signs of tooth decay and check the development of permanent teeth
- A gentle but thorough dental cleaning
- Application of fluoride to help prevent decay
We’ll also take the time to answer any questions you have and offer suggestions on caring for your child’s teeth.
Growing Up With Great Dental Care
Our dental team focus on educating your children about how to care for their teeth. They also offer general dentistry treatments like:
- Dental sealants to slow decay on hard-to-clean back teeth
- Fluoride treatments to prevent cavities
- Custom mouthguards to protect your child’s mouth during athletic activities
- Space maintainers to help ensure permanent teeth come in properly
Tips for Building Trust With Our Dentists
To help us build a positive relationship with your child, try these tips:
- Read books with them about dentists
- Talk to them about what will happen during their dental appointments
- Speak positively about your own experiences with the dentist
