Your Child’s Dental Visit Warrnambool

By visiting a Warrnambool paediatric dentist or children’s dentist as early as possible, your child can get off to a strong start in lifelong oral health.

You may choose to take your child on their first visit to the dentist as early as the appearance of their first baby teeth, which usually occurs sometime before the age of 1.

Your Child’s First Visit to the Dentist

Your child’s first visit to the dentist is an important step in getting them acquainted with regular dental check-ups, dentists, and the dental clinic.

The visit will be short and painless and should be followed up by frequent and short visits to help them get comfortable with the environment and start building trust in their dentist.

Many adults who suffer from dental fear may have seen very little of the dentist as children, if at all. The more your child visits the dentist the more they will accept it as something normal and nothing to be afraid of.

Depending on Their Age, Your Child’s First Visit Can Include:

  • A very gentle examination of their complete oral health. We will take a look at their teeth, jaws, gums, mouth tissue, and do an examination of their bite. This will begin a long-term observation of their oral and dental health development
  • Gentle cleaning of their teeth and gum lines to remove plaque, tartar, and stains
  • If they are of age, your child can receive x-rays of their mouth and dental structure to determine teeth position and detect any abnormalities or other issues
  • An oral care demonstration with professional tips on how to treat your child’s mouth and teeth at home
  • Nutritional and dietary counselling
  • Fissure-sealing or other precautionary treatment if necessary

Early treatment and prevention of dental problems help our children grow up to have good oral health during their adult years. A children’s dentist will be able to determine if your child has an incorrect bite, which may lead to lifelong dental problems if not corrected.

Visiting a Warrnambool dentist is the best way to determine if your child requires any form of dental intervention such as teeth straightening or other treatment.
