Dr. Muyal offers the following advice concerning your child's first visit.
Generally, the first visit includes an overall assessment of your child's teeth and gums. Dr. Muyal may want to take x-rays to examine facial bones and search for hidden decay. He may also recommend a cleaning and fluoride treatment.
You can consider bringing your child to see a dentist as early as 6 months of age but it is recommended that their first dental visit be no later than age 1. Preparing for these early experiences reduces the likelihood of your child developing a fear of the dentist or dental equipment.
Choose your dentist carefully. Ensure their office promotes a positive environment that makes both you and your child feel comfortable.
Explain to your child what to expect during their initial visit. You may want to ask your dentist what procedures will be done ahead of time, so that you can prepare your child properly for each stage of their visit.
Often the process of c1eanings and exams is more frightening than the dentist. Consider having your child watch you get a cleaning or exam before it is their turn.
Children are intuitive. Be careful not to pass on your own fears or anxieties about dental visits to your children. Ensure you are positive and prepared for the experience.
After their initial visit, it is recommended that children visit their dentist every 6 months.
Establishing good dental habits and positive experiences early, is important for your child's long-term dental health.
