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.
Most dentist are closed during night so if the pain is unbearable. Please visit the Victoria Emergency Dental Care page for information on what steps you need to take.
Looking for your next family dentist is a very important choice to make. You and your family dentist will be long-term oral health care partners; therefore, you should find someone you can be comfortable with. To find a suitable dentist to meet your needs, consider asking the following questions as a starting point:
- What are the office hours? Are they convenient for your schedule?
- Is the office easy to get to from work or home?
- Where was the dentist educated and trained?
- What’s the dentist’s approach to preventive dentistry?
- How often does the dentist attend conferences and continuing education workshops?
- Does the office appear to be clean, neat, and orderly? Do all surfaces and equipment in the treatment room appear clean?
- Is the dental staff helpful and willing to answer your questions?
- Do you observe the dentist and staff wearing gloves and other protective gear during actual patient treatment?
See your dentist as soon as possible about your toothache if:
- You have a toothache that lasts longer than 1 or 2 days
- Your toothache is severe
- You have a fever, earache, or pain upon opening your mouth wide
