Bring Your Child in Early For Their First Dental Appointment
We’ll work with you before your baby is even born to ensure they get a healthy start, with services like nutritional counseling and periodontal treatment for mothers. We recommend bringing your child for a first dental visit soon after birth. Starting this young is key to ensuring that teeth are developing properly and that there are no early problems that need to be addressed. We can even detect issues that sometimes go undetected, like tongue-tie and lip-tie. Having your child’s smile examined routinely will help them (and you!) avoid major dental problems and expenses.
At your child’s first dental visit, we will gently walk them through an examination (if they are OK with it) and allow them to get to know our team and facility. The main focus of the visit will be to allow your child to get comfortable with us. This is a great way to help avoid future dental anxiety and develop a positive, lifelong relationship with the dentist. We’re also happy to address all your questions about topics like teething and thumb sucking.
Ensure Healthy Oral Development With Total Health Dentistry
As they get older, we’ll provide total health dentistry that ensures their oral development goes well. Among our services:
- Orthotropics – Removable appliances gently guide the growth of your child’s facial bones so there will be plenty of space for the teeth and tongue. This minimizes or even prevents later orthodontics issues and makes it easier for them to breathe. To see if they’d benefit from this treatment, take our pediatric sleep disordered breathing assessment.
- Myofunctional Therapy – This treatment strengthens your tongue so it stays in the proper position in your mouth. This reduces the incidence of sleep disorders in children.
