Baby & Toddler Dental Specialists
Visiting the dentist for the first time is a milestone that all parents want their children to remember in a positive light. For baby’s first visit, it’s important to choose a pediatric dentist that uses state-of-the-art, conservative dental care procedures to not only protect your child’s teeth, but protect their impression of receiving dental care.
To best care for your child’s teeth, babies should visit a pediatric dentist when their first tooth appears or before their first birthday. Many parents shrug off the importance of baby teeth but they are so important for many aspects of your child’s life. Proper chewing and talking are much more difficult for children who experience unresolved dental issues. In addition, baby teeth lay the groundwork for the permanent teeth that will follow in terms of their spacing and orientation.

What You Can Expect
The focus will be on making sure the child is comfortable with the dentist and the dentist’s office. Depending on the dentist and the child, the parent may sit in the dentist’s chair with the child or they may be asked to wait in the waiting room. Generally, the dentist will count the child’s existing teeth and check them for signs of decay. They will also discuss with the parents further treatment plans and how to care for their child’s teeth at home.
Parents should expect to make an appointment with the pediatric dentist every six months. While this is the standard, the child’s pediatric dentist can determine on an individual basis whether appointments can be spaced out further or more care needs to be taken. In between appointments, parents need to complete twice-daily brushing of their children’s teeth or at least assist them in doing a thorough job. Toddlers, two and three year olds can be stubborn and want to “do it myself.” Instilling the importance of daily tooth care starts early. Fluoride toothpastes should be used in small amounts, especially until the child is able to spit it out after brushing.
