Your Child’s First Appointment
Usually, children are brought to the dentist between the appearance of their first tooth and their first birthday. To set them up for a lifetime of healthy smiles, we advise bringing them to our office as early as possible.
For our younger patients, we offer:
- Oral Examinations
- Oral Cleanings
- Tooth Extractions
- Tooth Fillings
With gentle expertise, we hope to instill good dental hygiene habits in our patients from a young age. We want to make taking care of your teeth fun.
Tips for Keeping Your Child’s Smile Healthy at Home
When your child’s first tooth erupts, they’ll typically experience soreness and sensitivity. It’s an unavoidable process, but to ease the pain, you can rub a clean, wet cloth along their gums.
Another way to alleviate their teething pain is with a teething ring. These have a cooling effect, which can reduce inflammation and soothe your child’s aching gums.
We advise you to never freeze a teething ring as it can cause frostbite and bruise your child’s fragile gums.
Help your child avoid tooth decay by limiting their intake of sugary foods and drinks. Make brushing and flossing their teeth fun by doing it with them every morning and night.
