Is My Child Old Enough to See a Dentist?

he American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child’s dental care program should start as soon as there’s a tooth. Even one tooth can develop a cavity, so it’s important that you find a good children’s dentist before you notice a cavity. When your child has two teeth, you should teach the flossing technique so that a cavity doesn’t form between the teeth.

Baby bottle tooth decay has become prevalent because children are given a bottle or a sippy cup to take to bed with them. Usually, the bottle has milk or juice in it, both of which are high in sugar content. Leaving milk or juice on the surface of a tooth for several hours is an invitation to decay or cavities. For more information, call our dental care office in Atlanta.

The Agenda for Your Child’s First Dental Visit

When you bring your child to our children’s dentist in Atlanta for the initial visit, the dentist will examine your child’s teeth and jaw for cavities, decay, misalignment, or any other issues that might be present. The exam can be performed with the child in the dentist’s chair or on your lap, whichever is the most comfortable. Normally, young children don’t require x-rays, but we can take them if it’s necessary.

We do our utmost to provide quality, affordable dentistry for kids. Some of our services include:

  • Tooth Cleaning: We’ve become experts at getting children to open wide enough for us to clean their teeth.
  • Fluoride Treatment: Our topical fluoride treatment will absorb into your child’s tooth enamel. This makes the tooth less susceptible to decay.
  • Dental Sealant: A dental sealant is a thin layer of a plastic substance that coats each tooth and helps to stop cavities from forming.
  • Pediatric Crowns: If your child has chips or small fractures, they can be easily repaired with tooth colored material that will restore functionality to the teeth and look very natural.
  • Baby Root Canal and Filling: If your child’s cavity has extended to the pulpy center of the tooth, a baby root canal may be necessary in order to salvage the tooth.
  • Mouthguards: A mouthguard is recommended by the American Dental Association for any child who is engaged in sports, whether it’s high contact sports like boxing, football or soccer, or another type of sport like gymnastics or ice skating. A mouthguard can reduce the risk of lost, loosened, or broken teeth as well as protect the face and jaw from injury.

How old will my child be when baby teeth start to appear?

Usually, children will get their first tooth around 6 months old. The teeth will appear in pairs most often.

How old will my child be when baby teeth start to fall out?

Teeth has a tendency to fall out in the order that they came in, meaning the lower center first followed by the upper center pair. BY age 6 or 7 children will start losing teeth.

Why does my child get so many toothaches?

One common reason for toothaches is the new teeth that are erupting from the gums, other causes may be decay or trapped food particles.
