How Old Should My Child Be Before Going to the Dentist?

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a child should begin regular dental visits when the first tooth fully erupts. One tooth can develop a cavity and if two teeth are next to each other, decay can begin between them. This is especially true for children who go to bed with a bottle or sippy cup of milk or juice. The acids and sugars in these substances can cause the tooth enamel to erode and decay can start. This has led to an increase in the incidence of baby bottle tooth decay. A child should never go to bed with a bottle or sippy cup but if they do, it should contain only plain water.

What Will Happen When I Bring My Child in for an Appointment?

When you and your child come to our office for your appointment, your kid’s dentist will examine your child’s teeth and jaw alignment and determine if there’s any work that needs to be done. Your child can remain seated in your lap or in the dental chair, whichever is more comfortable for you both. If your child needs x-rays, we can take them.

What Dental Services Are Offered for Kids?

Maintaining good oral health is just as important for a child as it is for an adult, so we provide a variety of services for children to help them achieve great dental hygiene. Some of the kids dental care that we provide include:

  • Bonding: Your children’s dentist can apply a plastic sealer that will guard your child’s teeth against cavities and decay.
  • Cleaning: Dental cleaning is essential to your child’s good oral health. Our hygienists are ready to make your child comfortable so they can clean all of their teeth.
  • Crowns: If your child’s tooth has a cavity that’s too large for a filling, we will create a crown to protect the tooth.
  • Fillings: If a tooth has a cavity, we can put a filling in it and restore function to the tooth and alleviate toothache pain.
  • Root canal: If your child’s tooth has decay that’s reached to the root, we can perform a root canal. This may be the only way to save the tooth.
  • Mouthguards: A mouthguard will protect the teeth against being knocked out, knocked loose, cracked, or broken. Your children’s dentist can make a custom mouthguard for your child.

When Should Baby Teeth Start Appearing?

Baby teeth usually start to appear at around six months of age, although they can start as early as four months. The lower two front teeth are usually the first to appear. Call us in Roxborough if you have questions about your baby’s teething.

When Will Baby Teeth Start to Fall Out?

Each child’s tooth formation is unique to them, but baby teeth can start to fall out as early as 5 or 6 years of age. Usually, the child is older but the teeth will fall out in the order they came in.
