Common Questions About Pediatric Dentistry

What can I expect during my child's first visit?

At our pediatric dental office, we aim for each child to have an exceptional visit and receive the vital dental care needed for a healthy, confident smile. Here’s what we typically cover during a first visit for new patients:

  • Pediatric Dental Exam: For infants and small toddlers, we often conduct a “lap-to-lap” examination to check the development of your child’s teeth.
  • Complete Digital Dental X-rays: We take a detailed look at your child’s developing teeth, bones, and nerves to ensure everything is progressing well.
  • Professional Teeth Cleaning: Our hygienist will thoroughly clean and polish your child’s teeth to remove any plaque, tartar, and bacteria.
  • Special Fluoride Varnish: We might apply fluoride to your child’s teeth to help prevent cavities and strengthen enamel.
  • Home Care Instructions: Our team will provide detailed instructions on how to maintain your child’s oral health at home.
  • Dietary Trends and Oral Habits: We discuss these as they are crucial for comprehensive at-home dental care.
  • Anticipatory Guidance: We explain what to expect with your child’s dental development until their next checkup.
  • Airway and Sleep Disordered Breathing Assessment: We assess your child’s airway health and check for any signs of sleep-disordered breathing, offering treatments like Vivos and HealthyStart when needed.
  • Tongue-Tie Assessment: If your child has a tongue-tie, we can perform a frenectomy using a LightScalpel laser, ensuring a comfortable procedure and quick recovery.

Our goal is to ensure that every aspect of your child’s oral health is addressed comprehensively during their visit.

What age should children first visit a dentist?

Children should visit a dentist by age 1 or within 6 months after their first tooth appears.

How often should children have dental checkups?

Generally, children should visit the dentist every six months, though some may need more frequent visits

Why are baby teeth important if they fall out anyway?

Baby teeth hold space for adult teeth and are crucial for proper chewing, speech development, and appearance.

What should I do if my child has a toothache?

Clean the area of the affected tooth, rinse the mouth with warm salt water, and consult your pediatric dentist if the pain persists.

What are dental sealants, and does my child need them?

Sealants are a protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth to prevent decay. They are recommended for children with deep grooves in their teeth.

How can I help prevent tooth decay in my child?

Good oral hygiene practices, a balanced diet, limiting sugary snacks and drinks, and regular dental visits are key.
