What Happens At Your Child's First Dental Visit?

First Dentist Visit For Children - Burwood Dental Care (1)

When your little one has his or her first dental visit, the dentist will first do a quick check-up to check your child’s teeth and gums. He or she will also ask you about any concerns you may have. Then, your child will get a quick clean of the teeth using a soft brush and fluoride toothpaste and a fluoride treatment to strengthen tooth enamel. During this cleaning, the dentist will also talk to you about ways to ensure your child has healthy teeth.

The dentist may also take some x-rays of your child’s teeth and mouth. Your child will need to place a special film over his or her teeth to keep them in place as the film is removed to take the x-rays.

If your child has cavities, Our pediatric dentist will discuss a treatment plan with you. He or she will also give you information on how to prevent your child from getting cavities again. Some children may need more than one visit to complete the treatment plan.

FAQ's About Your Child's First Dental Visit

Although it’s never too early to start building a great relationship with your child’s dentist, there are some guidelines that can help you know when it’s time to visit the dentist. The Australian & New Zealand Society Of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children should see a dentist at least once a year from age 1 to 2 years old, twice a year from age 2 to 6 years old, and once every six months from age 6 to 12 years old

Going to the dentist can be an uncomfortable experience for any adult, but it can be downright scary for a child. At the same time, it is just as important for children to visit the dentist as it is for adults.

Here are some of the top reasons for the importance of children visiting the dentist early on:

Poor oral health is often caused by an unhealthy diet and a lack of dental care. If you don’t take the time to see the dentist, it is difficult to change your poor oral health habits. Poor oral health can lead to more serious problems such as heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disorders, and tooth loss.

It’s best for both you and your child if you can find a positive dental practice where your child will feel comfortable.
