When should my child’s first dentist visit be?
Children should be introduced to their first dentist visit at 1 year old, or right after you notice that their first tooth has come in. Taking your child to regular dentist visits will help you develop a positive patient-dentist relationship with your child. This helps your child avoid developing dental anxiety early on, and helps instill the importance of good oral hygiene and dental visits.
Can children get cavities at an early age?
Yes. Tooth decay is an infectious disease and is especially prevalent among elementary school children. You can improve your child’s oral health by preparing meals that are low in sugar and discouraging in-between meal snacking and sugary drinks. Snacking provides more opportunities for the bacteria in your mouth to feed on sugar and produce acids that destroy tooth enamel and cause cavities.
What are dental sealants and how do they work?
A dental sealant is a protective invisible shield that covers your teeth to stave off bacteria. This dental procedure uses a resin to fill in the pits and grooves on your molar teeth and makes them a less favorable environment for bacterial invasion. If your child is especially prone to cavities, or if a low-sugar diet is not entirely realistic, you may want to talk to Dr. Mulkey about preventative sealants.
