Proper Dental Health Techniques Start Young
Children form their habits very early in life. After your child’s third birthday, they should have their first official regular dental visit. When you bring your child into Smile Designs of Olney, their first visit will be relatively short and requires very little treatment. For the first part of the visit, we may ask you to sit in the dental chair with your child during the examination. During part of the visit, we may also ask that you wait in the reception area. We want a relationship to form between your child and our dentists. Trust and communication is such a crucial, overlooked part of the dental experience. We want to ensure that your child trusts our professionals and feels safe around them.
What You and Your Child Can Expect From the First Examination
During the examination, we’ll gently examine your child’s teeth and gums. Then, we may take Xrays to reveal if there is any tooth decay. We also take Xrays to check on the progress of your child’s permanent teeth under the gums. Another step in the examination is cleaning your child’s teeth as well as applying topical fluoride that will help fight against decay. We will also make sure that your child receives adequate fluoride at home. Finally, the most significant step of the examination is reviewing with you how to clean and care for your child’s teeth.
