When should I take my child to the dentist for their first check-up?

The first dental visit should occur shortly after the first tooth erupts and no later than the child’s first birthday. Beginning tooth and mouth examinations early may lead to detection of early stages of tooth decay that can be easily treated. In addition, early visits allow a child to become accustom to the dental office environment and staff. At the first visit we will present:

  1. A program of preventive home care including brushing, flossing, diet and the importance of fluorides.
  2. A caries risk assessment.
  3. Information about Early Childhood Caries, which may be due to inappropriate nursing habits or inappropriate use of sippy cups.
  4. The latest facts about finger, thumb and pacifier habits.
  5. What you need to know about preventing injuries to the mouth and teeth.
  6. Information on growth and development.

Complete safety & Comfort

Sedation dentistry is not just for anxiety.

All of your dental work can be done in a single visit in a safe & fun environment.

This type of dentistry is great for those who have anxiety, a low pain threshold, can’t sit still in a dentist’s chair, someone with very sensitive teeth, those with a strong gag reflex or anyone needing an extensive amount of dental work. Patients with special needs due to physical, medical, developmental or cognitive issues also need and deserve special consideration.
