Pediatric Dentist in Newton
Setting kids on the right track when it comes to their dental health and a solid at home oral regimen can mean a happy, healthy smile for life. We take your children through every step of their dental development from adolescence to adulthood.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
Protect your child’s teeth and get them comfortable with the experience by starting their dental checkups early. It is recommended that the first dental visit should take place within six months after your baby’s first tooth appears, and no later than their first birthday. Children can be prepared for their first visit by regular at home oral care; reading books or watching shows about going to the dentist; and by accompanying parents to our office to become familiar with the dentists, team, and surroundings.
The first dental visit is usually short and involves a quick examination and possibly a quick cleaning if the child is amenable. Parents may stay with their child for the first portion of the visit, but may be asked to allow the child to experience part of the visit alone to build their confidence.
Each child’s teeth and gums are carefully examined, X-rays may be taken (to look for decay and check on the progress of permanent teeth under the gums), teeth may be cleaned if indicated, and a fluoride treatment may be provided to protect against decay.
