The Children Dentistry Life Cycle
Experts recommend that every child should have their first dental visit not later than the first birthday and every six months after that. Besides safeguarding your child’s oral health, regular visits help children to familiarise and get comfortable in the dental ambience to ease treatment. Here is what you can expect from the pediatric dentist visit:
If necessary, the dentist will clean your child’s teeth gently by polishing them and removing plaque build-up or stains. Then, s/he will perform a tender but comprehensive examination of the teeth, bite, jaw, gums, and oral tissues. The analysis is crucial in monitoring growth & development and effects of pacifier usage and thumb sucking on your baby’s teeth. The assessment also allows the dentist to diagnose problems such as a cavity, gum diseases, ulcers, and gingivitis early.
After diagnosing any dental problem, the dentist will recommend ways to intervene before it worsens. The dentist may take preventive measures such as the use of fluoride or sealants to prevent tooth decay. S/he may incorporate restorative dentistry such as fillings and crowns or aesthetic dentistry including braces, bite correction, or extraction to fix your child’s dental issues.
Through demonstrations, the dentist will teach you and your children the techniques of proper brushing and flossing, which you can practice at home. S/he will also enlighten you about proper nutrition, teething, and developmental milestones.
