When Should I Schedule My Child’s First Dental Appointment?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child sees the dentist for the first time when their first tooth comes out, or when they turn one year old. Visiting the dentist from a young age helps ensure that you get answers to any questions related to your child's oral health and that any oral development issues are caught early. 

If your child is older than 1 year, don’t worry! The best time to start seeing the dentist for pediatric visits is now, so schedule a consultation with Dr. Christiansen and the team at Loveland Lakes Family Dentistry today!

What Can I Expect from a Pediatric Dental Visit?

This depends on the age of your child. If your child is between 1-2 years old and does not yet have most of their baby teeth, Dr. Christansen will do a quick assessment of their overall oral health and gently clean each tooth and your child’s gums. Then, he can answer any questions you may have about your child’s teeth and oral development.

If your child is between 2-3 or has most or all of their baby teeth, they will receive a standard cleaning, just like an adult would. One of our hygienists will examine their mouth, remove plaque and tartar, floss, clean and polish their teeth. Next, Dr. Christiansen will conduct a comprehensive oral exam. With your approval, x-rays may be recommended, but only if they are deemed necessary according to the results of your child’s oral exam.

Why Is It Important for My Child to See a Family Dentist Regularly?

There are many reasons that family dentists are important. First and foremost, bringing your child to the dentist from a young age helps keep their smile healthy and ensures they avoid common childhood oral health issues like cavities. 

It also helps your family dentist keep an eye on their oral development as they grow, and makes your child more familiar with the process of seeing the dentist, which helps reduce dental anxiety. Seeing a family dentist in Loveland is a great way to ensure your children get the oral care they need at every stage of life. A great family dentist will form a relationship with your child over the years, which will help your child develop better life-long oral hygiene habits.
