Your child’s first visit to the dentist should be enjoyable. Children are not born with a natural fear of the dentist, but they can fear the unknown. At Love Your Smile Today, our hygienists make a special effort to use pleasant, non-frightening, simple words to describe each dental treatment. We want you and your child to feel at ease from the moment you arrive at our Love Your Smile Today office. The more you and your child know about the first visit, the better you will feel.
Regular Checkups Prevent Tooth Decay!
Your child should visit a Love Your Smile Today office every six months for regular dental cleanings and checkups. We recommend fluoride treatments twice a year along with cleanings and periodic digital xrays to keep their teeth strong and healthy. Dental sealants are also recommended because they “seal” the deep grooves in your child’s teeth, preventing decay from forming in these hard-to-reach areas. Sealants last for several years but will be monitored at your child’s regular checkups.
