Does your child need instruction on how to look after their teeth? Do you need advice on your child’s newly erupting teeth? Are you concerned about staining or discolouration on your child’s molars? These are common concerns of parents and we are here to answer your questions. It is never too early to have your first dental visit, and we even encourage you to bring your babies and toddlers so we can get to know each other. As soon as a child turns two, it’s time to visit the dentist or dental hygienist for an oral health assessment.
Being your local Mt. Gambier dentists, we know that there can be nervousness or fears about your child’s 1st dentist visit and we work hard to make the visit a comfortable experience.
From general examinations, gum care, and oral hygiene instruction to interceptive orthodontics, restorative dentistry, you can rest assure that a gentle reassuring touch will be used.
What happens on the first visit?
Your child meets the dentist or dental hygienist and has an opportunity to get used to the dentist’s high-tech chair. This consultation mainly involves just a visual inspection, making sure there’s nothing unusual with the child’s teeth and gums. The dentist also counts the child’s teeth using the dental mirror – a fun game that we’ve found usually fascinates the patient!
The dentist or hygienist should take time to answer any questions to create a gentle, positive experience that is often accompanied by plenty of giggles for both the child and the parent! We are reliable child dentists in Mt. Gambier who offer reliable dental services to kids and make sure that your kids
As well as doing an oral examination, the dentist or dental hygienist assesses the child’s growth and development and identifies any risk of dental decay, as well as educating the child (and parent) on brushing techniques and the importance of healthy nutrition on teeth.
