Your Child’s First Dental Visit
We like to see children around the time of their first tooth eruption. This timeframe allows our dentist to check the integrity of the tooth and make sure your child’s gums are healthy and ready for the next!
During this visit, we familiarize your child with our dental office and introduce the instruments in a fun way so that he or she has positive associations.
Dr. Judy Yu also examines your child’s teeth, and she takes time to share any concerns with you. We also encourage you to ask questions. It is our goal to make your child feel relaxed, but your well-being matters, too!
Children’s Dentistry in Pasadena, MD
Children grow up fast, and in no time, exams graduate to include x-rays and professional teeth cleanings. Before you know it, your child is ready for dental sealants to lock bacteria away from their teeth. Eventually, Dr. Yu may suggest fluoride treatments to strengthen your child’s teeth enamel against cavities.
At Dental FX, we introduce appropriate services as your child ages. We want to keep pace with his or her needs and provide the best dentistry possible.
As with adults, we recommend twice-yearly dental exams and, eventually, professional teeth cleanings.
Children’s dentistry in Pasadena, MD may include:
- Dental exams
- Dental cleanings
- Dental fillings
- Dental sealants
- Fluoride treatments
For older teens, we may recommend orthodontics or clear braces when appropriate.
Your Child’s Comfort and Reward
We place a lot of emphasis on your child’s comfort, which is why we provide blankets, pillows, warm towels, refreshments, and even nitrous oxide.
Nitrous oxide is a safe gas delivered through a nasal mask. It helps children feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental treatment. It wears off immediately following mask removal as well.
During your child’s exam, he or she can watch a favorite television program while we tend to their smile.
We also have treasure tower. It is here that your child selects his or her reward for being brave!
At Dental FX, we believe that children who enjoy visiting the dentist will carry those positive associations into adulthood. This approach generally means a lifetime of good dental habits and a healthy smile.
