Frequently Asked Questions About Pediatric Dentistry

  • When should my child first visit the dentist?

    Your child should have their first dental visit by their first birthday or within six months of their first tooth. Early visits allow the dentist to check for any early signs of dental issues. Additionally, these visits provide an opportunity to educate parents on proper oral hygiene practices and address any concerns they may have about their child’s dental health.

  • How should I care for my baby's teeth?

    Use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste to gently brush your baby’s teeth twice daily. Regular dental check-ups starting at the age of one are essential to monitor and maintain your baby’s oral health.

  • What is pulp therapy?

    Pulp therapy, often called a “baby root canal,” is a dental procedure that treats infections or damage in the tooth’s pulp, the innermost part containing nerves and blood vessels. This treatment helps save the tooth from extraction and maintain its function for chewing, speech development, and maintaining space for permanent teeth.
