First Dental Examination in Children
It is recommended that the first dentist examination in children should be carried out by the pedodontist after the eruption of the first milk tooth. Thanks to the regular examinations every six months, the teeth development, oral hygiene and dental caries can be diagnosed and treated at the early stage and the risk of caries can be prevented.
The most important purpose for the first dentist visit is to try to protect from early childhood caries, known as baby bottle tooth decay by giving information on how to clean teeth during infancy and how their eating habits should be.
During the first examination, it is important to eliminate the child’s anxiety. Children should not be told about the process and materials to be used before. The members of the family are expected to read children's books about the dentist before the first examination.
The family should not provide information about the treatment. Dentists will provide information about the procedure so that they can understand them. During the first visit, words such as pain, pain and needles should not be used by families. Although the expectations of the families in the first examination are met, the priority for the physicians should be the child and his / her psychological status.
First you need to prepare the child. The child cooperates to be treated by his/her dentist when he sees that there is nothing to be afraid of. These approaches and treatments should be performed by the most appropriate pediatrician (Pedodontist) for your child.
