When Should My Child See The Dentist?
The Importance Of Early Dental Care
Your child should see Dr. Luck for the first time when they turn one year old, or when their first tooth starts to erupt. Routine appointments with Dr. Luck from a young age have a number of benefits. Frequent visits help your child become more familiar with going to the dentist, and they enable you to develop a better doctor-patient relationship. Starting early at the dentist also helps Dr. Luck track your child’s oral development more effectively throughout their infancy and childhood.
Keep Their Smile Healthy
Oral Exams And Teeth Cleanings
Your child should come in for a teeth cleaning and oral exam every six months. During your appointment, one of our dental hygienists will gently clean their teeth and gums, and look for cavities and signs of other oral health issues. Then, Dr. Luck will examine your child’s mouth, and determine if any further action is necessary. She may also recommend x-rays if she suspects that your child may have an oral issue that cannot be identified with an oral exam alone.
Strengthen Their Teeth
Fluoride treatments can help reverse minor cases of tooth decay, which are sometimes called “soft spots.” As the enamel wears away, the outside of the tooth softens, eventually forming a cavity. A fluoride treatment involves the application of a highly-concentrated fluoride solution to these “soft spots,” allowing them to remineralize and reversing the damage caused by minor tooth decay.
Prevent Cavities From Forming
Dental sealants involve a special type of liquid resin that is applied directly to your child’s rear molars after a cleaning. The dental resin hardens into a strong, protective plastic barrier which prevents the teeth from coming into direct contact with oral bacteria and acid. This, in turn, prevents the formation of cavities. Dental sealants can last up to 10 years, so they are a good option if your child is cavity-prone and you would like to avoid the cost of multiple dental fillings or crowns.
