Your Child's First Visit in Oklahoma City
As parents, you want to give your child the best tools for success. A strong and healthy smile is one of the most invaluable gifts you can establish for your son or daughter. Dental checkups on healthy teeth and gums start yearly; we see children as young as one or when their first tooth erupts. At this age, your little one can start feeling comfortable in the dental chair and having their teeth counted and examined. Our focus during their early appointments is on establishing good home care and oral habits.
After the first dental visit, your child should start seeing Dr. Allen twice a year for preventive cleanings and exams and to allow us to monitor their oral development. If we catch an early troubling dental health issue, we will treat it immediately. Our dental cleanings are gentle and informative, and our young charges can relax and feel comfortable during their visit.
Comfortable Children’s Dentistry
As a parent, you can take many healthy steps to help your child feel comfortable during their visits with us. We love it when parents engage their sons or daughters during their daily brushings, especially when they show how they brush their own teeth. This sets a good example for your little one to learn the skills to help them when they start cleaning their teeth independently.
Preventive Dentistry for Children
As your child hits their dental developmental milestones, we may start suggesting preventive dental treatments, such as:
- Dental sealants – We coat your child’s tooth with a thin film of resin to protect it from cavities
- Fluoride treatment – We strengthen and build your child’s developing teeth with this mineral
- Mouthguards – We protect your son or daughter from external injuries
