Frequently Asked Questions

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends scheduling your child’s first dental visit by their first birthday or within six months of their first tooth eruption.

During the first visit, the dentist will examine your child’s mouth, gums, and teeth, checking for any signs of decay or abnormalities. They will also discuss proper oral hygiene practices and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Dental sealants are thin protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth to prevent cavities. They are often recommended for children as an extra layer of protection against tooth decay, especially in hard-to-reach areas.

Prolonged pacifier use or thumb sucking can affect the alignment of your child’s teeth and the development of their jaw. If these habits persist beyond infancy, they may lead to orthodontic issues. Your dentist can provide guidance on how to help your child break these habits if necessary.

Encouraging good oral hygiene habits, such as regular brushing and flossing, limiting sugary snacks and drinks, and scheduling routine dental check-ups, are crucial for cavity prevention. Additionally, applying dental sealants and fluoride treatments can provide added protection against decay.
