When should my child first visit the dentist?
According to professionals, children should have their first appointment with a pediatric dentist at the time of their first tooth erupting through the gums. This is often before or around the first birthday. Parents should arrange for an evaluation with our dental team to discuss the advantages of early interventions. During this first appointment, Dr. Munira Lokhandwala will educate parents on ways to keep their child’s smile healthy. Recall visits should be made every six months afterward to evaluate the smile, clean the teeth, and monitor the progression of tooth eruption.
Why visit a pediatric dentist?
A pediatric dentist:
- Has extensive training in handling younger patients
- Offers services that may be more geared towards children, such as fluoride treatments and sealants
- Works with parents to help them in preparing their children for oral health success
- Is gentle and takes his or her time with children to make them feel at ease in the dental chair
How should I prepare my child for their first dental appointment?
In most cases, children do not have a fear of the dentist or dental anxieties unless they have had a prior bad experience in the dentist’s chair or if they have overheard adults talking about painful or uncomfortable procedures. In most cases, parents should focus on educating their children about good oral health and let them know that their dentist is their friend and can help them keep a beautiful smile for many years to come.
