Dental Care for Children

21 Jul

Your baby finally gets her first tooth that you have been waiting for! Those sleepless nights, and cranky days have all lead up to this first big moment. As a new parent most have questions around this time. How do I brush them? Should she now be going to the dentist? What is next? We are here to help you.

Once a tooth has exfoliated we recommend that you begin to instill good dental habits with your child. From wiping the newly exposed teeth with a wet cloth after bottles and before bedtime to exploring a tooth brush and toothpaste. Routine is important and your children will surprise you how accepting they can be once the habit is formed.

Around the age of 1-2 years we suggest coming to the office for a little tour. This can be done while you are in the chair having your appointment. First visits are all about getting used to what goes on in the office. Each child is different and we will accommodate the visit accordingly.  Some may jump right into the chair and open up wide while others may just want to watch taking it all in. What is important to us is gaining their trust, so we will follow their lead in order to achieve this.

If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to give us a call. We would love to meet your little ones. 905-257-4910
