Children’s Dentistry Helps Your Littlest Smiles
Parenting brings about a lot of questions, and these can easily multiply when a child’s teeth start to come in. Typical ones include, “When should I bring my child to the dentist in Aurora for the first time?” or, “What will their first visit be like?” At Southland Smiles, we’re happy to treat Aurora’s littlest smiles and help them get a strong start on the path to optimum oral health. We understand that your child’s first few dental visits are crucial, which is why we’ll do everything we can to make sure they’re perfectly comfortable the entire time.
Dr. Chris Harvan, Dr. Kristina Harvan (parents themselves) and Dr. Christina Linn agree with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists: a child should start having regular dental appointments as soon as their first tooth appears or at least by their first birthday. When they come in for their first visit, we’ll take our time to make sure your child can acclimate to our dental office. We know that they need a gentle touch, and that their state of mind is extremely important. Once they are comfortable, we’ll examine their mouth and talk to both of you about how to take care of their newly developing smile.
When it comes to your child’s teeth, you can consider everyone at Southland Smiles a partner. We’ll always be happy to answer your questions (like how to get them to start brushing consistently) and give you all the information you need to keep them healthy for the years to come.
If your little one is starting to get their teeth, be sure to bring them in for an appointment soon. Contact our office today-- we can’t wait to meet both of you!
