When to Visit a Dentist?

If you’re concerned about your child’s oral health, you can rely on us. One of the most common questions we receive is when to bring your child for their first dental visit. At Integral Dental, Ellice Dental, and Pearl Dental, we recommend bringing children to our clinic when they get their first tooth, or when they reach their first birthday. While it’s a fact that your child will lose their baby teeth later, taking care of these teeth is important because they are very porous and are more susceptible to decay compared to adult teeth.


It is an excellent idea to teach your children about optimal oral hygiene as soon as they are able to understand the concept. You can begin brushing your child’s teeth as soon as a tooth comes in using a soft-bristled toothbrush designed for baby teeth. Until they know not to swallow toothpaste, we suggest using only water to brush your child’s teeth.


During your child’s many visits to our clinic in their first year of life, our dentists will do basic examinations of your child’s mouth. If your child has missed the one-year or first-tooth mark, no need to worry - it’s never too late to bring your child in for the first visit. Our dentists are trained to thoroughly examine your child’s oral health and identify any potential issues with your child’s jaw or soft palate.

Importance of Having a Pediatric Dentist in Winnipeg

If you’re nervous about taking your child for his or her first dental visit, you can rest easy with the services of Integral Dental, Ellice Dental, and Pearl Dental. Our dentists in Winnipeg provide exceptional dental care for children, helping them start on their path towards excellent oral health. Here's some ideas to help you prepare your child for his or her first visit to the dentist:

 

  • Talk about It: One of the best ways to prepare your child for his or her first dental visit is to begin talking about teeth, oral health, and dental hygiene well in advance of the dental visit. Generally, children love to learn about the world around them and themselves. Hence, you can start with discussing about the fun experience during the dental treatments. To help you better, there are a variety of resources for teaching children about things related to their teeth, including songs, activities, fun books, and more.
  • Have a Good Attitude: At a young age, your children rely on you for everything they need. This makes them adjust to your personal feelings and attitudes at various situations. To get your children more interested in a dental treatment, show them that you too are excited about your dental health. But, don’t forget to portray that you are relaxed and comfortable about visiting a dentist. If you’re calm and happy, it’s likely that your children will be happy too.
  • Practice Together: For every one of us, brushing teeth was a new concept at one point in our lives. We also know that brushing our teeth is important to our oral hygiene and our children need to learn that. When it comes to learning a new task, doing the task together with a parent, older sibling, or guardian is one of the best ways to learn. At first, you can teach your children with the motion of brushing teeth. When they start learning under direct supervision, they can pick up on the technique themselves. However, at the learning stage, they should always be in your presence. If your kids are not interested in learning how to brush their teeth, you can start with some kind of fun reward following the completion of a successful teeth brushing.
  • Choose the Right Dentist: Choosing the right dentist can help you create a positive attitude in your children’s mind about their first dental visit. While you choose a dentist based on a convenient location, flexible office hours, and children-friendly office, the most important part is to choose a dentist you and your children can trust, and feel comfortable with. It is also important to ask your dental office if they have the staff to care about your children, are friendly and compassionate, and have the experience and knowledge required to provide the best care possible.
