Bringing your child to the dentist at an early often leads to a lifetime of good oral care habits and acclimates the child to the dental office. • Thereby, reducing anxiety and fear, which make for plenty of stress free visits in the future.
  5. 5. Preparing your child for the first visit • The first appointment can always be bit worrying for the parents because they do not really know what to expect. • Most parents are also worried that their babies won’t co- operate enough on the day of the visit. • Before the visit, ask the dentist about the procedures of the first appointment so there are no surprises. Plan a course of action for either reaction the child may exhibit - cooperative or non-cooperative.
  6. 6. • Very young children may be fussy and not sit still. Talk to the child about what to expect, and build excitement as well as understanding about the upcoming visit. What will happen in the first visit? • Many first visits are nothing more than introductory icebreakers to acquaint the child to the dentist and the practice. • In case the child is frightened, uncomfortable or non- cooperative, a rescheduling may be necessary.
  7. 7. • At Dr.Sachdeva’s Dental Clinic, the first visit of the child is carried out with patience and calm. • Reassuring communications with the child helps in these cases. • Child appointments should be scheduled in the early hours of the day, when the child is fresh and alert. • For children below the age of 36 months, the parents need to sit in the dental chair and hold the child during examination.
  8. 8. With a compliant child, the first session lasts between 15to 30 minutes and may include the following, depending on age:  A gentle but thorough examination of the oral cavity to monitor growth and development and any problem areas.  If indicated, a gentle cleaning to remove any plaque or stains.  X-rays  A demonstration on proper brushing and cleaning.  Assessment of the need for fluoride. The dental team at Dr.Sachdeva’s Dental Clinic, Ashok Vihar, provides a relaxed, non-threatening environment for children.
  9. 9. When should the next visit be? • Children, like adults should see the dentist every six months. Some dentists schedule interim visits for every three months when the child is very young. • This is done to build up a comfort and confidence level or to treat a developing problem.
  10. 10. How to protect the child’s oral health at home? • Parents should typically provide oral hygiene care until the child is old enough to take personal responsibility for the daily dental health routine of brushing and flossing. • A proper regimen of preventive home care is important from the day a child is born. • Cleaning of the gums for infants with a clean, damp cloth after each feed.
  11. 11. • As soon as the first teeth come in, begin brushing them with a soft, small tooth brush and water. Begin using toothpaste after consulting with the dentist. • Try weaning off your child by one year of age, to prevent any nursing bottle caries or misalignment caused due to sucking. • Monitor excessive sucking of pacifiers, fingers or thumb. Nap time feeding should not be encouraged.
  12. 12. • Brushing twice a day under parental supervision, using pea sized fluoride tooth paste. • Help a young child brush at night, the most important time to brush, due to lower salivary flow and higher susceptibility to cavities. • Usually by age of 5 or so, the child can learn to brush without parental guidance.

Baby teeth/Primary teeth are only in the mouth for a short period of time but they play a vital role, Baby Teeth: • Reserve space for their permanent counterparts. • Give the face its normal appearance. • Help attain good nutrition.

  15. 15. Shall children use mouthwash? • Generally, mouthwashes are not recommended in children who are incapable of spitting and rinsing. • In older children fluoride mouth rinse can help prevent decay and cavities but only in addition with brushing. Rinsing after meals with water is mandatory.
  16. 16. Children and Fluoride • Fluoride is safe for children. Fluoride is a natural mineral that protects and strengthens teeth against the formation of cavities. • Using it early in the child’s life will provide protection for developing teeth.
