When should my child's first dental appointment take place?
It's our recommendation that children visit the dentist at the first sign of a tooth, or around their first birthday.
After this, we may not need to see them again until the rest of their teeth come in (around age three), but bringing them in for an early initial visit will give us the opportunity to diagnose, monitor and more effectively treat any potential issues.
How frequently should children visit the dentist?
Like adults, children should visit the dentist at least every six months for a routine check up and hygiene cleaning. The dentist may recommend more frequent visits depending on your child's unique oral health needs.
Sedation Dentistry for Children
Is your child anxious or fearful about visiting the dentist? If yes, then sedation dentistry may help ease that anxiety.
Our Delta dental practice offers both oral sedation to take before their appointment, and nitrous-oxide gas during their appointment.
Nitrous oxide is usually recommended for children, since wears almost off immediately once their appointment is finished.
