A child’s first visit to the Dentist should take place when the first tooth erupts in the child’s mouth and no later than the age of one years old.
For early information! Since the causing factors of dental decay settle in the mouth during infancy, why should you visit the Dentist late?
The purpose of the child’s first visit at the age of one is to inform the parents about preventing dental decay issues. The first visit includes the examination, diagnosis and most importantly the familiarization of the child in the dental environment, using the Behavior Management Techniques.
Dental phobia is widespread and would not exist if the child started visiting the dentist before the problems with his teeth occurred.
How do we fight Dental Phobia?
When a tooth has a cavity the treatment of choice is usually the placement of a filling, unless the cavity is too large or too deep into the nerve. In such cases and especially if the tooth had a root canal treatment a crown is considered necessary.
Primary teeth are very important for the following reasons:
- They help in proper chewing
- They aid in good pronunciation and speech habits
- They encourage normal development of the jaw bones and muscles
Thumb sucking and dummy sucking are natural habits which comforts and relaxes the child. Psychologists say that the prolonged use of dummy or thumb sucking is related with the emotional absence of the mother.
