The first visit is a very friendly one. At Febres Dentistry, we try to keep things easy and fun, to ensure a positive first dental experience. At this visit we educate parents on proper dental hygiene and oral health. The teeth will also be cleaned and polished followed by the application of fluoride solution. On the first visit we try to create a relationship between the families and our office, in hopes to establish ideal home dental care.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Pediatric Association recommend the first visit to the pediatric dentist be when the first tooth emerges and no later than 1 year of age. After the first dental visit we recommended seeing your child every six months; this will help your child stay cavity-free. Teeth cleanings remove debris that builds up on the teeth, irritates the gums and causes decay. Fluoride treatments renew the fluoride content in the enamel, strengthening teeth, and prevent enamel decalcification. Dr. Febres will gently examine your child’s teeth, oral tissue and jaws.
