The moment has arrived, your child is one-year-old and it’s time to schedule their first dental visit. At Nicholas Cosmetic Dental Center, we want to preserve your child’s teeth and gums for years to come and we start this process by first introducing them to our staff to assure they feel comfortable in our dental chair. Here's what to expect!
During your child’s first visit, one of our doctors will examine his or her mouth, teeth and gums, as well as evaluate adverse habits such as thumb sucking. They will also check to see if your child needs fluoride treatment and teach him or her all about cleaning their teeth and keeping their gums healthy. If your child has well surpassed the age of one, you will need to limit their sugar intake as a method of cavity prevention. At our office, we are most concerned with all aspects of preventive care and can offer dental sealants as a way to protect your child’s teeth. Once the oral exam is complete and you are satisfied with your experience, we will suggest a schedule for regular dental visits.
If you are searching for a pediatric dentist, look no further and give us a call. For more information about the services we provide at the office, visit www.nicholascosmeticdentalcenter.com.
