Dentistry for Kids
When a child is in need of dental care, it is possible to take them to a regular, adult dentist. However, the environment of a grown-up dental office can be intimidating to a child - and the staff inside, poorly equipped to deal with a child’s psychology. In the worst cases, this can lead to a child becoming traumatized and learning to fear dentists on account of one or several unpleasant experiences. This is why you may want to take a child to see a “child-friendly” dental practice.
The Right Time For a First Visit
It’s best to bring your child in for their first dental examination when they’re 3-6 years old. This way, they’ll grow up being used to dentists - and you’ll have valuable information regarding the health of their teeth and jaws. This will allow you to get orthodontic treatment as soon as possible if there is a need for it.
