Terrific Toddler Program
In Our Terrific Toddler Program,
We complete a knee-to-knee exam and cleaning. Your toddle sits comfortably on your lap while our experienced staff clean and examine their teeth to gauge tooth development and any early signs of decay. In this way, we can gently introduce them to the office setting in a private and comfortable environment and also proactively work to resolve any early issues.
To prevent early childhood cavities, parents should investigate their child’s risk of developing cavities, and the variables involved. At their child’s first visit, they may also learn how to manage diet, hygiene, and fluoride to prevent problems.
In addition, the Terrific Toddler Program dental visit offers parents a forum to discuss:
- How To Care For An Infant’s or Toddler’s Mouth
- Proper Use of Fluoride
- Oral Habits, Including Finger and Thumb Sucking
- Ways To Prevent Accidents That Could Damage The Face and Teeth
- Teething and Milestones of Development
- The Link Between Diet and Oral Health
After The First Visit,
The dentist will suggest a schedule of follow-up visits. In the past, dentists typically called for visits every six months. Now, the schedule may vary according to each child’s needs and risks. As your child grows, the dental team can help you learn how to prevent common oral problems.
