Your child’s first dental visit

When your baby’s first tooth appears, it’s crucial to bring them to the dentist to evaluate their facial bone development and address any potential dental problems.

To ensure your child’s cooperation during the dental appointment, we suggest scheduling it in the morning when they’re well-rested from a good night’s sleep. This will also avoid conflicts with their nap and snack times

Dental Care for Your Child

It may surprise you to know that children’s teeth begin to develop before they’re even born. In fact, most babies start growing teeth between 3 to 6 months of pregnancy! By the time your baby is born, they already have a complete set of primary teeth (or milk teeth) that are hidden within their gums. Then, at around 6 months old, the first tooth will erupt from the gums, which is commonly referred to as ‘teething’.

Protect Your Child's Teeth with Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a simple and effective way to protect your kid’s teeth from cavities. At Micris Dental Clinic, we recommend sealants for children who are at a higher risk of tooth decay, especially on permanent teeth, molars, and premolars.

Our pediatric dental specialists can advise you if your child needs dental sealants. The procedure is painless and quick, with the protective coating lasting up to 5 years. It works by creating a barrier against bacteria and plaque buildup on the back teeth and chewing surfaces, preventing decay and promoting healthier teeth.

While dental sealants are an effective preventive measure, good oral hygiene habits are still crucial. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups are essential for maintaining healthy teeth. 


Most frequent questions and answers

Your child’s first dental visit is essential for their oral health. Here’s a brief summary of what to expect:

  1. The pediatric dentist will gently examine your baby’s teeth, gums, and bite, and assess their facial growth and development.
  2. If needed, X-rays may be taken to detect hidden issues or monitor tooth development.
  3. The dentist will provide tips on cleaning your kid’s teeth, preventing cavities, and promoting healthy oral habits.
  4. Use this opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns about your child’s oral health.
  5. Bring your child’s dental and medical history, including any medications they’re taking.

Remember, this visit is a positive step towards ensuring your child’s dental health and building a lasting relationship with their pediatric dentist.

When your baby starts teething, try these tips to relieve their discomfort:

  1. Gently massage their gums with a clean, cold washcloth.
  2. Offer a cold teething ring to chew on.
  3. Look out for symptoms like swollen gums, irritability, drooling, and biting.

If the discomfort is too much, consult your pediatric dentist for pain relief recommendations. Always check with your dentist before giving your child any medication.

Follow these simple steps to care for your baby’s teeth:

  1. Wipe their gums with a damp cloth after feedings, even before teeth come in.
  2. Brush twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a tiny amount of baby toothpaste.
  3. Choose a fluoride-free toothpaste for babies.
  4. Limit sugary drinks and snacks, and avoid bedtime bottles.
  5. Visit a pediatric dentist regularly, starting at age one.

By establishing good oral hygiene habits early, you’ll help your child maintain healthy teeth and gums throughout their life.

Follow these steps to start brushing your child’s teeth:

  1. Begin at six months or when the first tooth appears.
  2. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste for children.
  3. For under two years, use a smear of toothpaste; for ages two to five, use a pea-sized amount.
  4. Brush all surfaces, including the tongue, and teach your child to spit out toothpaste.
  5. Replace the toothbrush every two to three months or when the bristles wear out.

Regular brushing, a healthy diet, and dental checkups will help keep your child’s teeth strong and healthy.

Yes, milk or infant formula can cause tooth decay if consumed excessively or improperly. Prolonged bottle-feeding with milk or formula, especially before bedtime or during naps, can lead to Early Childhood Caries or Baby Bottle Tooth Decay, which is a type of tooth decay that occurs in babies and young children.

To prevent this, parents should establish good oral health habits early on and only feed their children with breastmilk, infant formula, or water. It is also important to avoid giving sugary drinks such as juices or soda to children.

Bottle-feeding should be finished before bedtime to prevent prolonged exposure to milk or formula. By taking these simple steps, you can ensure your child’s oral health is protected and promote healthy habits that can last a lifetime.

Dental X-rays are safe and important for children’s dental health. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. X-rays help diagnose hidden dental problems, such as cavities and tooth alignment.
  2. Modern X-ray machines use low radiation levels and are designed to limit exposure.
  3. Pediatric dentists use lead aprons and thyroid collars for added protection.
  4. X-rays are taken only when necessary and their benefits outweigh the risks.

If you have concerns, talk to your pediatric dentist to learn more about the procedure.

Tooth decay is the most common dental problem among children. This occurs when bacteria produce acids that damage the tooth’s enamel and create cavities. Here are some tips to prevent tooth decay in children:

  1. Schedule dental checkups every six months.
  2. Teach good oral health habits, like brushing and flossing.
  3. Limit sugary foods and drinks.
  4. Encourage water instead of sugary beverages.
  5. Consider dental sealants for added protection.
  6. Ensure sufficient fluoride intake.

By following these simple steps, you can maintain good oral health and prevent tooth decay.

Primary teeth, also known as milk teeth, play an important role in your child’s overall oral health. Here are some reasons why they are essential:

  1. Primary teeth help with proper nutrition: Chewing food properly is essential for proper nutrition, and healthy primary teeth ensure that your child can do this effectively.
  2. They are important for speech development: The proper alignment of teeth is necessary for speech development, and primary teeth help in the development of clear speech.
  3. Primary teeth hold space for permanent teeth: They hold space in the jaw for permanent teeth to grow and emerge in the right place.
  4. Loss of primary teeth due to decay can lead to problems: If primary teeth fall out too early due to tooth decay, it can result in permanent teeth growing in the wrong position, which can cause problems with alignment and appearance.

It’s important to take good care of your child’s primary teeth by encouraging good oral hygiene habits, regular dental checkups, and a healthy diet.

Babies often suck their thumbs when they are hungry, sleepy, or restless. This habit is common, but it is important to stop it before the permanent teeth come in. Thumb sucking can lead to misaligned teeth (malocclusion) and affect your child’s chewing and swallowing abilities.

Here are some tips to help you stop your child’s thumb-sucking habit:

  1. Praise your child when they are not sucking their thumb, instead of punishing them when they are.
  2. Give your child something to hold onto or play with, like a toy or blanket, to help them feel more comfortable and secure.
  3. Try to distract your child whenever you see them sucking their thumb, by offering them a snack or engaging them in a different activity.
  4. Talk to your pediatric dentist, who can provide you with additional tips and techniques to help your child stop thumb sucking.

It is important to help your child break the thumb-sucking habit before it becomes a dental problem.

Teeth whitening products are not recommended for children. These products are generally formulated for adult use and may contain harsh chemicals that could be harmful to your child’s developing teeth and gums. In addition, many whitening products are abrasive and could potentially cause damage to the tooth enamel.

It is best to consult with a pediatric dentist before considering any teeth whitening treatment for your child. In some cases, discolored teeth may be a result of an underlying dental issue that requires medical attention.

If you are concerned about the color of your child’s teeth, good oral hygiene habits such as regular brushing and flossing can help keep teeth looking clean and healthy. Also, maintaining a healthy diet low in sugary foods and drinks is important for oral health.

Remember, prevention is always better than cure. Encourage good oral hygiene habits early on to prevent the need for teeth whitening products in the future.
