Start Your Children’s Dental Visits Early

Parents frequently ask us when they should first bring their young children to the dentist. Our dentists recommend the first visit for children’s dentistry be around the age of three. We call this the “Happy Visit!” It is vital that children start their early dental experiences with fun, easy, non-threatening visits. Our dental hygienists and doctors are great with the little ones. Children learn about the suction (“Mister Thirsty”), the water squirter, the bright light that they get glasses for, and if they are ready for it, the tickling tooth brush.

Keep Their Teeth Beautiful

A common procedure for children to undergo is the process of getting a dental sealant. Dental sealants help prevent cavities, and could potentially save your child from pain and more problems as they grow older. At McKinney Dentist, we understand your utmost concern for your child’s oral health, and assure you that our experienced professionals understand and identify with your concerns in regards to children’s dentistry in McKinney, TX. We will help you make the right choices to ensure that your child has a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile for years to come!

Starting Early is Key to Prevent Future Fear

By developing good dental habits from the start and having positive experiences at the dentist early on, children can avoid developing a fear of the dentist like many of their parents. This also lets our dentists begin checking your child’s teeth very early, and ensure that they are practicing good brushing and oral care. When kids start children’s dentistry young, it makes them much more confident as they age to say “Yes!” to their future dental care.

Another way to gradually introduce your child to the dentist is to bring them along on your own dental visit! By doing so, you give your child the chance to get acclimated to the dental environment. We have found this strategy works well for some children. We want the parents to be a big part in showing that going to the dentist isn’t something to be afraid of. We want your child to learn the importance of oral health and children’s dentistry at an early age.
