It’s understandable that the dentist’s office can be a scary place for young children – after all, there are plenty of adults who are spooked by it, too! If you want your son or daughter to be invested in keeping their smile happy and healthy for years to come, though, it’s crucial to instill good oral health care early on. That’s why the team here at Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry is committed to providing gentle, comprehensive children’s dentistry services to your loved ones, designed specifically to fit the unique needs of little smiles. Patients from all over Sapulpa, OK are welcome to bring the youngest members of their family in to experience Drs. Mohanna and Georgy’s five-star treatment!
We recommend that your son or daughter attends their first children’s dentistry appointment around the time their first tooth comes in. These first few visits are usually referred to as “happy visits” because we’ll spend the time making sure your child is accustomed to the various sights and sounds of our dental office, as well as explaining to you how to properly care for their oral health. Once they reach the age of four, their children’s dentistry examinations will become more extensive; at this point, we’ll usually ask that you sit out in the waiting room so that we can form a stronger bond with them. Children are often scared or anxious when faced with unfamiliar situations; by easing them into the dental care process and ensuring that they feel comfortable, we eliminate this negative possibility.
In addition to an extensive check-up of the teeth and gums during a children’s dentistry appointment, we might also:
- Take X-rays in order to more completely assess developing teeth
- Clean the teeth thoroughly
- Check for undesirable habits like thumb-sucking
- Educate them about proper brushing and flossing habits
Your loved ones deserve the best dental care available, and that’s just what you’ll find at Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry. Contact our Sapulpa, OK office today to schedule an appointment for the littlest smiles in your family. We can’t wait to leave your teeth healthier and happier than ever!
