Dental Tips

When should my child's first dentist visit be?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child see a dentist when their first tooth comes in, usually between 6-12 months old.

What happens at my child's first appointment

At your child’s first appointment, we will establish a relationship to ensure that your child views dentist appointments as a pleasant occurrence. Every child receives a thorough examination and then is further treated to their specific needs.

What should I do if my child has a toothache?

If your child has a toothache, rinse out their mouth with warm water to clean out their mouth. Gently floss to remove food or other debris between the teeth. If the face is swollen, a cold compress can be used. If the pain persists, contact us for further advice.

Do baby teeth really matter?

Baby teeth are just as important as permanent adult teeth. They help your child chew and speak, as well as hold space in the jaw for their developing permanent teeth.

Is toothpaste safe for infants?

As long as toothpaste is not swallowed excessively, it is recommended to start using as soon as your child’s teeth start growing in. Use a pea-size amount and a gentle, age-appropriate tooth brush.
