Getting Started With Your Child's Oral Health

Learn how to ensure your child is on the path to healthy teeth and a beautiful smile.

For most toddlers, getting them to brush their teeth should not be a chore. In fact, with the right approach starting as soon as the first tooth peeks through the gum line, your child will become enthusiastic participants in learning and practicing good oral health habits – for life.

Contact us today

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your child’s first teeth typically start to emerge around 6 months of age. It’s recommended that children visit the dentist by age 1 or within 6 months of their first tooth appearing. If you notice any signs of discomfort or suspect any issues, please schedule an appointment promptly. It’s never too late for your child’s first dental visit.

Baby teeth are just as crucial as adult teeth. It’s important for parents to recognize that baby teeth serve more than just holding space for permanent teeth. They play a significant role in shaping a child’s face, smile, and overall confidence. Children who feel comfortable smiling and expressing themselves early on are likely to maintain these habits. Dental pain, even if it’s mild and normalized by children, can have long-term effects on their eating habits, including chewing, food preferences, and appetite.

The duration of the appointment will vary based on the child’s needs and cooperation during the exam. Generally, appointments last about one hour.

Your toddler, child, or teen should visit the dentist as often as you do. We suggest a checkup and cleaning every 6 months, unless advised otherwise. If your child experiences tooth or jaw pain, frequently rubs or holds their jaw, or avoids hard or cold foods, please schedule an appointment sooner.

A cavity is a hole in the tooth that gets bigger with time. A cavity may or may not hurt or cause sensitivity. It’s important to get cavities repaired before they become more serious or lead to infection, even in baby teeth! Cavities are caused by bacteria and dental plaque and made worse by sugary or acidic foods and drink. Some people are more prone to cavities than others.

Your mouth comprises more than just your teeth; it’s a complex system involving the teeth, tongue, gums, cheeks, glands, ligaments, joints, bone, and more. When one part of your oral health deteriorates, it affects your entire mouth. Swollen, itchy, sore, or bleeding gums can be an early sign of a more serious issue.

We understand how hectic family life can be! We can serve the whole gang by booking multiple appointments side-by-side. Please give us a call and we would be happy to accommodate you.
