Children’s First Dental Visit
During their first visit, we will carefully explain what is going to happen and do our best to make it a fun, educational experience. As we examine their mouth, we will make note of the development of their mouth, teeth and bite alignment, and look for any signs of gum disease, baby bottle tooth decay, TMJ, or prolonged problems such as teething and thumb-sucking.
We take x-rays as needed, clean and polish the teeth, and apply fluoride as needed. In addition, we work to help your child understand the importance of a healthy diet, proper tooth brushing, and more.
