The start of your child’s oral care is something that every parent has questions about, which is why we proudly offer first visits for infants and toddlers at Just Smilez Dental. It is completely normal to feel overwhelmed about the wellbeing of your child’s first set of teeth. We are here to help you along your child’s journey right from their first tooth all the way to their permanent adult teeth. Our team will walk you through everything you need to know about caring for your child’s teeth.
We recommend that you schedule your child’s first visit as soon as you notice their first tooth beginning to erupt. During your visit, our friendly team will examine your child’s mouth thoroughly to ensure there are no concerns. By examining your child’s mouth, we are able to check for misalignments, if their gums are happy and healthy for new baby teeth to arrive, and what to expect over the next few months.
As part of your child’s first visit with us, we will provide you with the best recommendations for maintaining healthy oral care as they grow.
Once your child reaches 6 or 7 years of age, their temporary baby teeth will begin to fall out. At this stage, their permanent adult teeth are getting ready to erupt. We recommend that you and your child visit us during this period also. That way, our practitioners can check again for potential misalignments or any problems that could affect your child’s permanent set of teeth.
As part of your child’s first visit with us, we will provide you with the best recommendations for maintaining healthy oral care as they grow. It is our job to inform you of the right dental care that you and your child can do at home and in between your visits with us. By helping you and your child establish a strong oral health care routine, their mouths will be set up and strong for when their permanent teeth begin to arrive.
