When to bring your child for dental visits

Posted on 3/6/2023 by Dr. John Abajian
When to bring your child for dental visitsDental checkups are vital and should be done at least twice a year. Visiting the dentist will help in knowing the progress of your oral health. The dentist examines the teeth of the child and detects problems in the mouth and teeth before they become severe. Gingivitis is less severe gum disease and if left untreated can lead to periodontal disease which is a more severe type of gum disease. Bring the child to regular dental checkups to identify such like problems early enough.

What to expect

When you take your child to the dentist for the first time the dentist will ask you to hold the baby on your lap so that the baby feels comfortable. The dentist examines the teeth and mouth looking for tooth decay, checking the gums, bite, jaws frenum issues, and other problems that might affect the teeth. The dental hygienist will clean the gums and teeth of your child and give you advice on how to take care of the child's teeth and gums. The dentist will answer all the questions you might have on the dental health of your child. The pediatric dentist will ask you to frequent your dental visits so that they monitor the progress of your child's teeth. The dentist will also require knowing any medical history of your child .

Make it a habit to visit the pediatric dentist for the oral health of your child. Our dentists will be ready at all times to offer advice on how to care for the teeth of your baby. In case of any questions do not hesitate to ask the dentist and you will get help and answers to your questions.
