How Soon Should You Start Taking Your Child to a Kids’ Dentist?

Most parents wonder, “How soon should I take my child to a kids’ dentist?” According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, children need to visit a dentist no later than their first birthday. This is because children are susceptible to cavities from the moment their first baby teeth start coming in, which typically occurs by this age. Our dentist will examine your children for tooth decay and provide guidance on the dental care you can provide at home. For instance, the dentist will share tips on how to effectively brush and floss your child’s teeth – even if your child typically hates to sit still.

Parents are often unaware that babies and toddlers can experience a dental problem called baby bottle tooth decay. When the sugar in juice, formula, milk, and sugared water stays on the child’s teeth for long periods of time, it can cause cavities. This tends to happen when a child falls asleep with a bottle or sippy cup in their mouth. To prevent this problem, dentists strongly advise to never let your child sleep with a bottle or sippy cup.

Please contact our office to schedule an appointment for your child’s dental examination.

What Will Occur When Your Child Visits a Children’s Dentist?

During your child’s dental visit in New Castle, our dentist will closely examine your child’s teeth and jaw alignment for any possible problems. We can perform this examination in a regular dental chair or while the child sits on your lap, based on their comfort, age, and preference. We will only take X-rays if they are needed to detect dental decay. Young children usually don’t need X-rays unless they have a potential dental issue that requires closer evaluation.

We provide the patience and gentle touch that children often need when they visit the dentist. We offer the following dental services to keep your child’s teeth healthy, bright, and strong:

Professional Cleaning:

Our gentle dentist and hygienist will make you child comfortable so their teeth can be thoroughly cleaned.

Protective Fluoride:

We can apply a topical fluoride treatment for children on the enamel of the teeth to help protect them from decay.

Dental Sealants:

A sealant for children’s teeth is a thin, protective layer of plastic that is applied to the surfaces of your child’s molars to prevent bacteria from getting caught in the deep grooves of these teeth and causing decay.

Cavity Fillings:

When filling cavities in children, our dentist will gently remove the decayed part of your child’s tooth and then seal it with a tooth filling.

Tooth Bonding:

If your child’s tooth gets chipped or broken, our dentist will use a tooth-colored restorative material to cover the damage.

Root Canals:

When tooth decay extends deep within your child’s tooth, it can cause major tooth pain. This dental procedure can be the only way to relieve the pain and ultimately save the tooth.

Pediatric Crowns:

These are thin caps that are placed over teeth that have cavities too large for fillings, as well as teeth that received a root canal.

Does Your Child Need a Mouthguard to Protect Their Teeth?

Children who are active in sports and other athletic activities can suffer a strong blow to the face that does damage to their teeth. But a mouthguard can protect their teeth and reduce their risk of having a tooth knocked out, loosened, or broken.

Call our kids’ dental care practice today at (302) 352-2321 to keep your child’s smile looking its very best.
