Happiness is the Truth- Your child's first dental visit

Posted by J Darrel Jensen on Wednesday, May 28, 2014
So, you've heard your pediatrician mention that all children should be seen by a dentist around their first birthday, but you wonder what exactly we can do for your sweet, squirmy baby. Studies have shown that preschool-aged children are getting more cavities. 1 in 4 children in the united states has had at least one cavity by the age of 4. Many children can get cavities as early as age 2.

Our office focuses on a positive and happy fist visit. At the appointment we discuss:

How to care for an infant's mouth
Proper use of fluoride
Oral habits (thumb and finger sucking)
Teething 
The link between diet and oral health

We generally find that most children may need to see us for a "happy visit" at least once if not more often before they allow us to begin cleaning their teeth. Giving your child confidence in the dental chair can be one of the greatest gifts you can give them.
