Preparing for Your Child’s First Dental Trip

Pediatric dentistry in houston tx | Royal DentalYou and your little one will have to undergo through the struggle of a first dental visit — at least, that’s how most parents look at it. Many of us make the mistake of assuming that kids will dread their first meeting with the dentist, but that’s not usually the case.

If you, like your kid, are a newbie to this experience, here are some of the things you can do as you prepare your child for his or her first dental visit.

  • While your child still does not have a dentist of his or her own, the first thing you would most likely consider is to bring him or her to your own dentist. However, some dental specialists may not have enough knowledge about a child’s dental cycle and may not be able to provide your kiddo with the proper care and treatment. Because of this, it is essential to find a pediatric dentist for your child. These dentists have extensive knowledge on your child’s oral health and know how to deal with children during dental appointments.
  • Prepare a list of your child’s current medical conditions and medications taken to give to his or her dentist. It would also help to have the dentist’s contact number handy in case of any missed out information.
  • Inform the dentist if your child has any oral habits, such as thumb-sucking or doing so on a bottle or a pacifier. This habit can affect the condition of your child’s teeth and jaw.
  • Talk to your child. Let him or her be aware of what’s going to happen on the day of the dental appointment. This will help greatly in keeping your kid’s anxieties and fears away.

Do You Need a Smile Makeover?

During your initial consultation with one of our dentists here at Royal Dental, your teeth and overall oral health are assessed to determine if a smile makeover is indeed the right procedure for you. Some aspects to consider include:

  • Color of teeth. Stained and discolored teeth can ruin one’s smile. Stained and discolored teeth can be addressed with teeth whitening treatments, tooth-colored composite fillings, and dental crowns and bridges.
  • Missing teeth. Not only are missing teeth unpleasant to look at, but it also increases one’s risk for tooth decay. Lost teeth can be replaced with partial dentures, bridges, or dental implants.
  • Gapped or misaligned teeth. The crookedness or the overlapping of teeth can be corrected with orthodontic treatments or veneers.
  • Length of teeth. Teeth that are too short can affect one’s smile. With a smile makeover, teeth can be reshaped and lengthened through porcelain veneers and composite bonding. Gum length can also be modified using laser dentistry treatments.
  • Smile line. A smile makeover is especially done to improve the patient’s smile line or the imaginary line that goes along the edges of the upper teeth from side to side. The smile line must ideally follow the curve of the lower lip when the individual smiles.
