When And How To Prepare For Your Child’s First Visit To The Dentist

The most frequent question parents ask our dentists is when they should bring their children for their first visit to the dentist. We recommend bringing them for the first appointment within six months of the first tooth’s eruption or by one year of age. Early dental visits will build a strong foundation in children’s minds of healthy oral care and make their future visits easy and friendly. Before your child’s first dental visit, you may want to:

  • Bring your child by our office for a preview tour
  • Explore children’s books written on the subject of visiting the dentist
  • Explain to them what they can expect/look forward to about their first visit
  • Relate to them positively about your past experiences with the dentist



Contact Us to Book Your Family’s Dental Checkups, Exams and More

At Janz Family Dental, we provide a wide array of children’s dental services, from the eruption of your child’s first teeth to providing regular cleanings and exams, digital x-rays, Invisalign® braces, and more. Our dentist would be happy to be a part of your children’s growing journey from infancy to teens to youth and beyond.

Regular checkups and exams are typically recommended once every six months, the same frequency most adults visit their dentist. Many of our patients schedule their child’s checkups around the same time as theirs so that they can see the dentist simultaneously.



Maintaining your child’s oral hygiene between visits

Your growing child needs a proper dental routine to fight germs, cavities, and bacteria and maintain good oral hygiene for years to come. As a parent, it’s your responsibility to look after their dental habits and problems. When your child develops cavities and other dental issues, they might also experience a lot of pain. If this is left untreated, it can lead to infections. As a parent, you can follow some simple steps to ensure your child always has that confident smile!

You must always clean your baby’s mouth after feeding: even though their first tooth hasn’t erupted. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-fluoride toothpaste for your child. Once your child has their first teeth, let them select their favourite toothbrush and make sure they brush their teeth twice a day. Supervise your child while brushing to ensure they do it properly, and throw away old toothbrushes. Remember to change your kid’s toothbrush for better results after 3 to 4 months.

Build a habit of flossing with your children to remove plaque, bacteria and food from their teeth. Flossing regularly helps keep children’s teeth clean and plays a crucial role in preventing gum diseases by keeping the area between the teeth healthy. Establishing this habit early can lead to a lifetime of better oral health, setting them up for a brighter, healthier smile in the future.

Limiting sugar intake and juices in your children’s diet can significantly reduce the risk of tooth decay. High-sugar foods and drinks can erode enamel and stimulate bacteria growth. By managing their sugar consumption, you can help protect their teeth and promote overall health, setting the stage for lifelong healthy habits.

Avoiding bedtime drinks and snacks can drastically lower your children’s tooth decay risk. These can leave residue on their teeth overnight, leading to enamel erosion and cavities. Establishing a routine that excludes late-night snacks and beverages protects your child’s oral health and reinforces good dental hygiene habits.

Scheduling regular visits to the dentist is essential for your children’s dental health. Regular check-ups can help catch potential issues early, prevent dental problems, and instill a sense of importance towards oral hygiene. Building a habit of routine dentist visits fosters a proactive approach to dental health, setting your child up for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
