Building a Lifetime of Smiles Begins with a Strong Foundation

Help your children embark on the journey of excellent oral hygiene from an early age, and keep an eye on their development as they blossom into their radiant smiles. We recognize the complexities and joys of caring for a family, and we know that children require special attention. A healthy smile is a crucial aspect of childhood, so let’s guide them on the correct path with advice tailored to their unique needs.

Getting Ready For Your First Appointment

Encourage open conversations with your child about their upcoming dental appointment. The primary goal of this first visit is to create a comfortable, enjoyable atmosphere and foster a positive bond with the dentist. Uncertainty about what lies ahead can sometimes lead to anxiety. To ease this, here’s a rundown of what your child can anticipate in their initial dental appointment:

Talk and Listen

We’ll engage both you and your child in conversation, clarifying our procedures and the reasons behind them, and introduce your child to some of the instruments we use. Our approach involves using child-friendly language and demystifying any dental jargon to ensure your child feels as relaxed and confident as possible. You’ll see, there’s nothing frightening about us at all.

Gently Examine

We’ll conduct a careful examination of your child’s gums, tongue, teeth, and general oral health. This exam aims to identify any areas of concern or spots that might require additional care at home. We’ll offer tailored advice for home dental care and make a note to focus on these specific areas during your child’s next visit.

Educate

We may request your child to demonstrate their tooth brushing technique, after which we’ll provide gentle guidance on how to enhance their brushing routine at home. We’re also here to address any questions you or your child might have about dental health.

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 will start to cut their first teeth at around 6 months. It is recommended that children visit the dentist by the age of 1 or within 6 months of getting their first tooth. If you suspect something might be wrong or your child might be experiencing discomfort or pain, please book an appointment as soon as possible. It’s never too late for a child to have their first dental appointment.
Baby teeth are no less important than adult teeth. Parents should understand that baby teeth do so much more than hold space in the jaws for permanent teeth. Children’s teeth can permanently affect how their face appears, how they smile and how often they smile. Children who are free to develop confidence and smile big in their early years tend to hang on to those habits. Dental pain, even mild pain that children learn to normalize, will have a lasting negative impact on children’s eating habits including how they chew, what kind of food they prefer and how much food they eat.
The length of the appointment will depend on the needs of the child and how cooperative they’re feeling during the exam. That being said, an appointment typically lasts about one hour.
After your first appointment, your child should come to the dentist as frequently as you do. We recommend a checkup and cleaning every 6 months unless otherwise specified. If your child has a tooth or jaw ache if you notice them rubbing or nursing their jaw a lot or if you notice them avoiding hard or cold foods please book an appointment sooner.
Your mouth isn’t just your teeth. It’s a whole system including teeth, tongue, gums, cheeks, glands, ligaments, joints, bone and more. When one aspect of your oral health sugars, your whole mouth suffers. Swollen itchy, sore or bleeding gums can be an early indicator of a much more serious problem.
