Frequently asked questions

01. How often should my child see the dentist?
Regular dental checkups for children are typically recommended every six months. However, the frequency may vary depending on your child's oral health needs and their dentist's recommendation.
02. How can I prepare my child for their first dental visit?
To prepare your child for their first dental visit, you can use positive language and explain that the dentist will count their teeth, take pictures, and ensure their teeth are healthy. Reading children's books about going to the dentist or role-playing at home can also help familiarize them with the experience.
03. What happens during a child's dental visit?
During a child's dental visit, the dentist will examine their teeth, gums, and oral tissues, clean their teeth, apply fluoride treatment if necessary, and provide oral hygiene instructions. They will also discuss any concerns, habits, or potential treatments with you and address any questions you may have.
04. When should my child start brushing their teeth?
You can start cleaning your child's teeth as soon as their first tooth erupts. Initially, you can use a soft, damp cloth or a small, soft-bristled toothbrush to clean their teeth and gums. As they grow, you can transition to using a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste.
05. Are dental X-rays safe for children?
Dental X-rays are generally safe for children. The amount of radiation used in dental X-rays is minimal, and additional precautions such as lead aprons and thyroid collars are used to minimize exposure. X-rays are only taken when necessary to detect dental issues that may not be visible during a visual examination.
06. How can I help my child overcome fear or anxiety about going to the dentist?
To help your child overcome fear or anxiety, it's important to maintain a positive attitude and avoid using negative or scary language about dental visits. Choosing a pediatric dentist who specializes in treating children and creating a comforting and friendly dental environment can also help alleviate anxiety.
07. When should my child start using dental floss?
You can start flossing your child's teeth as soon as they have two teeth that touch. Initially, you may use floss picks or pre-threaded flossers to make flossing easier. As they develop more dexterity, you can transition to regular dental floss.
08. What can I do to prevent cavities in my child's teeth?
To prevent cavities in your child's teeth, encourage them to brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, help them floss daily, limit sugary snacks and drinks, promote a balanced diet, and ensure they attend regular dental checkups.
09. When should my child stop using a pacifier or thumb-sucking?
Pacifier use and thumb-sucking are common habits in infants and young children. Most children naturally stop these habits on their own between the ages of 2 and 4. Prolonged pacifier use or thumb-sucking beyond this age can affect the alignment of the teeth and jaw development, and it may be necessary to discuss strategies with your child's dentist.
10. At what age should my child start using fluoride toothpaste?
You can start using a smear or grain-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste as soon as your child's first tooth erupts. As they grow, around the age of 3, you can increase the amount to a pea-sized portion. It's important to supervise your child's toothbrushing and ensure they spit out
