Children are very sensitive to dental treatment as they have a fear of dental chair and equipment.
Children require special attention when it comes to dental care, including teaching the child healthy habits and how to care for his or her teeth. This branch of dentistry deals with children from birth to adolescence. It is recommended that a dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth. It is important to establish a comprehensive and accessible ongoing relationship between the dentist and patient. This is because early oral examination aids in the detection of early stages of tooth decay.
We recommend a first checkup by 12 months old to make certain that teeth and jaw development are normal and even more importantly so that parents and guardians know how to help their children be healthy from the start.
