6 months following the teeth first appeared, or at the latest, within a year. If it is possible, arrange appointments for children who are small at the beginning of the day, so that they’re up and rested.
To help prepare your child before their first visit, you can give them an overview of the kinds of things they need to expect. Describe the significance of visiting dental visits to improve interest and comprehension. Talk to the dentist about your concerns and any concerns your child might have. Keep in mind that how you view the cleaning of your teeth could be different from your youngster. Your child should be able to share the emotions they feel and be sincere about how they feel about the dentist. Respect is important and your child will love being listened to.
Before the first appointment, tell the dentist everything about your child. If your child tends to be anxious, aggressive or anxious in different situations, talk with their dentist on ways to facilitate the visit for everyone. Keep in mind that children have a hard to express their emotions in different situations. That could make their behavior more difficult.
