The first dental visit should be done at the age of 6 months, immediately after the eruption of the first tooth (new baby) and not later than his first birthday.
This age is recommended because oral problems, especially caries, can occur from infancy and infancy.
Do not wait for school to start or for an emergency to occur, to visit a pediatric dentist. Parents should be aware that a timely visit to the pediatric dentist is very important for the future oral health of their children. The program of the first visit depends on the age of the child, his individual needs and his personality. It can start with a first acquaintance with the doctor’s office, the pediatric dentist and the team of dentists of the Dental Group and proceed to a simple or complete examination of the child’s teeth and mouth.
A key part of the first visit is to inform parents about issues related to:
- the physique, the eruption and the importance of the new and permanent teeth
- the problems that can occur to the teeth by poor nutrition
- prevention of dental caries and gingivitis
- Proper oral hygiene and the effects of prolonging bad habits, such as breastfeeding the thumb or other fingers or using a pacifier
- dealing with emergencies
At Dental Group we pay special attention to the child’s first visit to the doctor’s office, because good habits about dental care are established very early and accompany him throughout his life. We make the environment pleasant and the experiences positive and constructive.
