When should my child see the dentist?

27 Mar

When should I take my child to visit the dentist?

The answer is simply, “The earlier the better!”  It is recommended that children have their first dental visit by age 1.  This is because as Pediatric Dental Specialist’s we focus on prevention to help keep your child’s mouth healthy.

What we know……

Children develop all kinds of habits, some good and some not so good.  Research shows that children carry habits from infancy up through adolescence.  This is important because children who begin drinking juice, or other cavity causing drinks early, seem to be more likely to continue to consume these same drinks as they get older.  On the contrary, children who have always had good brushing habits are more likely to brush and clean their teeth better as an adolescent.

As parents we do the best we can with the tools and knowledge that we possess.  However, I know as a father myself, that there is so much I flat out don’t know.  Because of this, we seek out advice from friends, family, neighbors, strangers, the internet, but most importantly doctors.  I know that friends, family and the internet can be a great source of information, however, I have heard countless harmful “tips” that have come from these sources.   The most important place to receive solid health information is your child’s Pediatrician.  In the same sense the best place to receive information regarding your child’s mouth health is a Pediatric Dental Specialist.  Our goal is to work with each family to create healthy habits and remove some of the guess-work from parenting.

What to expect at the initial visit:

  1. Plenty of time to ask any questions that you have about your child’s teeth and development.
  2. Discussions of the best ways to keep a healthy mouth and teeth.
  3. Demonstrations and tips to make brushing easy and fun
  4. Examination to look at tooth spacing, growth, tooth and facial development
  5. Cleaning and “tooth vitamins” (fluoride varnish) to help keep teeth healthy
  6. A report card with take home messages to keep healthy teeth for your kids!
  7. Prizes for our little helpers, and entrance into our no cavity club for kids without cavities!

    It’s good for parents to know when to take their child to the dentist. I’ve always thought that children should be taken to the dentist once they start growing teeth. I didn’t realize that they should be taken to a dentist by the time they’re one years old. My daughter is already two, so it seems as though I should schedule an appointment for a dentist right away.
