We love welcoming children to Allure Dental Care & Orthodontics! Our dentists and team go the extra mile to create a positive and welcoming environment where children can feel at ease. Our goal is to help your child enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles and develop positive and trusting associations with visiting the dental office, and you can count on us to take the time to help your child feel comfortable at each appointment.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that you bring your child to the dentist for their first appointment when their teeth begin erupting, or no later than age 1. After this initial visit, we recommend that your child visit the dentist every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. These regular visits will help keep your child’s mouth healthy and allow our dentists to diagnose any developing problems in the early stages before your child’s teeth can be damaged. We also encourage you to call us as soon as possible if your child experiences a dental emergency so that we can get them the care they need.
It is also important that you help your child establish good oral hygiene habits at home by teaching them to brush and floss their teeth daily and maintain a balanced, nutritious diet. You may also need to brush and floss for your child until they develop the motor skills to do so on their own. Our dentists and team will be happy to provide tips on how you can help your child learn about good oral hygiene.
