What To Expect on Your Child’s Dentist Visit
No matter whether this is your child’s first dental visit or they’ve been coming for years, our Suburban Essex pediatric dentist and hygienists treat you with the same courtesy, care, and understanding.
From the moment you walk in the door of Suburban Essex Dental, your child can expect to see lots of bright, smiling faces and be asked lots of fun questions related to their day so far.
When your child sits in the chair, your pediatric dentist will perform the following tasks, and will always inform you of what he is doing:
- Check the child’s teeth for decay and signs of early development problems.
- Clean your child’s teeth thoroughly using their preferred flavor of toothpaste.
- Recommend, inspect, or apply dental sealants.
- Answer any questions and explain how to care for the child’s teeth.
- Supply you with a pediatric dental care package, including a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss.
When your visit is complete, you’ll always receive a full breakdown of what was done and what you should do in the future, as a parent, to maintain your child’s oral health.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child sees a dentist by his or her first birthday. Your pediatric dentist may suggest that you wait a bit longer depending on their development, but will definitely want to see the child before all their baby teeth have come in. So, don’t hesitate to make your first pediatric dental appointment for your little one.
