Visiting the dentist can be a nerve-wracking experience for a child, and it is important to find a practice that knows how to care for their specific needs. At Quincy Dentists, we provide care to every generation and go the extra distance to make sure children get all the care they need.
Your child’s first visit to the dentist should come when their first tooth erupts, or when they reach their first birthday, whichever comes sooner. As your child grows, potential problems can be fixed before they develop into much more complicated issues.
Teaching your child good oral hygiene habits now can make sure they stick to these lessons for the rest of their life. Our dentists will work with you to instill the importance of daily brushing and flossing to keep their teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime. Scheduling regular visits for them also helps to familiarize them with the sights, sounds and smells of a dental office so that they are comfortable with this type of setting. If they have pleasant experiences as a child, they are more likely to avoid dental anxiety and keep up good oral health throughout their lifetimes.
Finding a dentist who can attend to the needs of both you and your child will help you save time and give you reassurance that your family is getting the best care available. The same understanding and care that you receive during your visit will be given to every member of your family. With all of your appointments conveniently located in the same place, you will not need to worry about traveling to other locations and can even try to schedule some appointments around the same time.
During the initial visit, an overview and analysis of your medical and dental history is made. Following this process, your teeth and gums will be examined. In addition, you will be screened for oral cancers and have an X-ray is scheduled. After your dental profile is created and reviewed, you will evaluate the recommended treatments and procedures with the doctor. Follow-up visits will also include examinations, screenings, treatment planning, and other procedures as necessary.
