WHEN YOUR CHILD NEEDS DENTAL TREATMENT

July 10, 2019

The first dental visit is usually a very short one and involves very less treatment. On this visit, you give your child an opportunity to meet the dentist in a friendly way. The teeth of your child play an important role in helping your child eat, chew food and speak clearly. Therefore, it is very essential to take care of your child’s teeth. Many of the evaluations that are done for adults are applicable for children also like X-rays, orthodontic treatment and dental sealants. Few dentists may ask parents to sit in the dental chair and hold their child for the checkup and few can ask the parents to sit at the reception and wait so as to develop a healthy relationship with their child.

FIRST VISIT

The best time to visit the dentist for the first time is when the child is one year old or 6 months after he or she gets their first tooth. First visits are mostly about getting your kids used to the dentist’s chair and giving information to the parents about the ways they can care for their baby’s teeth.

SECOND VISIT

When your child reaches the age of 4 to 6 years then the dentist might perform an X-ray to check for cavities that are loitering between the teeth. Prevention comes in the picture between the ages of 6 to 12 when teeth of the baby give way to permanent teeth.

THIRD VISIT

When your child is 7 years old, his or her dentist may suggest for an orthodontic evaluation. During the evaluation, the dentist will check all the existing teeth of your child for decay, examine how your child bites and monitor other potential problems related to teeth, gums or jaw. The parents are given necessary education about oral health care basics for their children and developmental issues are discussed and all your queries are answered.

Kids are very special and so require a special doctor for their dental treatments. It is advisable to take your child to a pedodontist who can do a proper evaluation of your child’s teeth. At The Dental Roots, we have a kids dentistry chamber specially designed for kids. Below mentioned are the topics that a pedodontist discusses with the parents:

  1. Good oral hygiene practices for your child’ teeth, gum and cavity protection.
  2. Needs of Fluoride
  3. Oral habits
  4. Developmental milestones
  5. Teething
  6. Nutrition
  7. Schedule of dental checkups

As adults, even children should see the dentist every six months. There are many dentists that schedule interim visits every three months so as to make the child comfortable and boost their confidence level. At the Dental Roots, we make sure all your dental queries are answered in the best possible way and we make sure to provide you and your kids a relaxed and non-threatening environment. We are known for the best treatments for braces in Gurgaon.
