YOUR CHILD’S FIRST VISIT TO THE DENTIST?

The earlier you introduce your child to the dentist, the more comfortable their visits to the dentist’s office will be in the future. Often the child’s first visit is the most important step in learning that the dentist’s office is a safe and friendly environment. Find the time to take your child for examination at an early age – this will make subsequent visits much less stressful. Our staff knows how exciting a first visit to the dentist can be, so they’re here to walk you through each step.

Start your first visit with the following tips to make it as easy as possible:

  • Treat the first visit to the dentist as a casual check-up rather than a serious event.
    The most important part of this journey is to ensure that your child is comfortable and understands everything that is going on.
  • You can also introduce the dentist by taking the child with you to your dental appointment. If they see the parent serenely sitting in the dentist’s chair, they will learn that there is nothing to fear.
  • Our staff can take your child on a tour of the office to make sure that your child sees it as a friendly and comfortable environment.
  • Be sure to plan the initial screening visits during quiet parts of the day – this way your child will not feel rushed or burdened. The recommended appointment time for smaller children is always in the morning, when they are well rested and full.

PREVENTIVE CARE FOR CHILDREN

Prevention is our prime concern!

Good oral health is important for the overall health and happiness of the child. This is why we do everything in our power to keep our children’s smiles healthy, now and over time as they grow.

Our prevention plan includes:

  • Regular cleaning and check-ups
  • Fluoride treatment
  • Early detection and treatment of cavities
  • Detection of other irregularities in the oral cavity and referrals to appropriate specialists

WE’RE TRAINING BRUSHING CHAMPIONS!

Maintaining a healthy mouth requires regular hygiene. We focus on teaching children healthy habits.

Better habits.

More detailed examinations.

Less cavities.

What is a regular visit to the dentist?

A regular visit to the dentist includes a check-up every six months to ensure that the gums and teeth remain healthy. During the examination we pay attention to the health of the entire oral cavity – teeth, gums, oral mucosa and the tongue. If any changes in the child’s oral cavity need to be treated, you will receive appropriate recommendations and treatment guidelines during the visit.

Why are regular visits to the dentist important?

Regular visits to the dentist are necessary to keep children’s teeth and gums healthy.
During the examination we may find dental plaque deposits due to poor hygiene, developing cavities or inflammation of the gums, in which case we will provide you with advice about changing the diet or any bad habits your child may have.

What’s the importance of fissure sealants in children?

Sealing of fissures is a preventive procedure that we perform in children to protect their teeth from deterioration. The morphology of the lateral teeth is such that the fissures on their chewing surface are prone to deposits and development of cavities. These teeth are very important because children get their first permanent molars around the age of six and will need them all their life!
Sealants protect fissures in children’s teeth from cavities and ensure that the tooth can smoothly perform its function in the mouth for many years.

What is topical fluoridation?

Topical fluoridation is the process of coating children’s teeth with fluoride-based preparations. This method of prevention in paediatric dentistry provides excellent results in the prevention of tooth decay. Fluorides are minerals that strengthen tooth enamel and protect it from the process of demineralization – destruction of the surface layer of the tooth as the first stage in the development of cavities.
Topical fluoridation is performed in the office using gels and varnishes with high fluoride content.

Removal of soft deposits in children?

Soft deposits on teeth are a consequence of poor hygiene and a diet rich in sugars. If we notice soft deposits on your child’s teeth, we will remove them using an airflow treatment known as “sandblasting” or tooth polishing with specialized brushes and pastes appropriate for use in children.

EMERGENCY INTERVENTIONS

Emergencies in children often require special attention from an experienced dentist. Experienced dentists are patient and know how to deal with what can often be a stressful and difficult emergency situation for your child.

For all emergencies that include pain, swelling or trauma, such as falls, blows to the face or tooth eruption, you can always contact our staff to ensure that your child receives help as soon as possible.

THE FIRST VISIT

When should I bring my child for their first visit?

The doctrine in pediatric dentistry foresees a visit to the dentist around the first year of the child’s life. Early first visit is very important. We examine the mouth and teeth to make sure that everything is developing normally, teach parents how to care for their baby’s teeth, demonstrate the brushing technique and answer all your questions about oral hygiene, proper nutrition and the schedule of dental visits.

My child is afraid of the dentist and refuses to cooperate during dental treatment. How can you help?

Parents often worry that the child will not cooperate with the dentist. Unpleasant early experiences at the dentist’s office can lead to development of dental fear and anxiety. Each child is unique, which is why we strive to offer the best possible dental experience inidividually tailored to the child. We try to cultivate a healthy relationship with each child, filled with trust, so that we can guide them through their childhood and into adolescence and adulthood with a positive attitude towards dentists and oral health.

How should I prepare my child for his or her first visit to the dentist?

You can prepare your child by explaining that the visit will start by getting to know the practice. Our staff will gladly drive your child around the office on our super comfortable dental chairs, show them the magic fountain that pours water into the cup and the vacuum cleaner that gently sucks the saliva from the mouth, and introduce them to all the instruments we use, all in order to win the child’s trust. Our dentists are used to working with children, so they will check their mouths for any “little bugs” that create rotten teeth, tell them all about the importance of tooth brushing and gladly award them a diploma for their exemplary courage!

Can I stay with my child during the appointment?

Certainly, the presence of parents is an integral part of our work with children. For younger children, we usually examine them in the parent’s lap and later, when they become sufficiently relaxed, the parent can move to a chair next to the child in the office or to our waiting room. We want to support the child’s independence in the dental office because this is how we build trust in the child and present our dental team as people they can safely spend time with.

PREVENTION

How often should I brush my child's teeth?

Teeth should be brushed at least twice a day. After breakfast and before bedtime is an ideal time to brush. You should help your child with brushing until they start to eat with a fork and knife or until the age at which their fine motor skills development is considered complete (around the age of ten). Also, in children we recommend flossing in order to adequately clean the spaces between teeth.

Should we use toothpaste?

Toothpaste should be an integral part of your child’s oral hygiene. We always recommend fluoride toothpaste, but it needs to be appropriate for your child’s age! Also, in children up to three years of age we recommend that you use a grain-sized amount of toothpaste and increase it to a pea-sized amount in older children.

How often should I take my child to the dentist?

We would advise a check-up every 6 months, which includes examination and cleaning. If the child is at high risk of cavities or prone to rapid accumulation of plaque and tartar, we may recommend more frequent visits.

Why do milk teeth need to be sealed?

A common misconception is that milk teeth are not important because they will be replaced by permanent teeth. On the contrary, they play a very important role in the child’s psychosocial growth and development. They help with chewing, speaking and eating and contribute to a healthy appearance of the child. If any cavities developing on milk teeth are not treated on time, the child may be exposed to pain, infection, swelling and tooth loss. Premature loss of milk teeth can cause crowding of permanent teeth and irregularities in jaw development, so it’s very important to keep them in the jaw until the time comes for their replacement.
