A child’s first visit to our dental practice is often an adaptation visit aimed at familiarizing the child with a new environment. We should all remember that nobody is born with a fear of the dentist, and potential fears result from our unpleasant experiences. That is why every effort should be made to ensure that young patients feel safe and comfortable during a dental appointment. Stress-free treatment of dental caries, and even performance of dental surgery on children, is certainly possible thanks to the knowledge we have at our disposal these days.
However, one should always remember that prevention is better than cure and this is why it is important to make a dental appointment for your child as soon as possible (at the age of 6-12 months). That way we will be in the best position to tell you how to protect your child from oral cavity diseases.
Dear Parent! Please contact me as soon as possible in cases of trauma affecting your child’s permanent or milk teeth as catching such conditions in time is essential for the future health of your child’s teeth.
