EARLY DENTAL SCREENING TREATMENT IN MISSION VIEJO
Early dental screening treatment is significant for the health of your little ones. We advise parents to bring their infant for a dental screening by 12 months of age or as soon as the first tooth erupts in the mouth. The initial visit for your little one will include a thorough medical and dental history, an oral examination, showing age-appropriate tooth brushing technique, cleaning, and fluoride varnish treatment if indicated. Also, during this appointment, our dentist will do a full assessment of your baby’s risk of developing cavities, discuss a prevention plan, and set a time frame for periodic re-evaluation. Even if your baby only has one tooth in, they should still come in and be seen by our pediatric dentist. Starting them off early on the path to good oral hygiene will be beneficial to their oral health as they grow.

First Pediatric Dentistry Visit
Your child’s first pediatric dentistry visit is essential to their oral health. We recommend that they are seen with six months to a year after their first tooth comes in. On our page, you can learn about what to expect when your child comes in for their first initial pediatric dental visit. Here at New Generation Dentistry, we want your child to feel safe when they come into our offices. The sooner they come in, the more comfortable they feel over time.
Preventative Dental Care
Preventative dental care is vital for your child’s oral health. It is a parent’s job to help their children prepare to go to the dentist and to help their children to cooperate with their pediatric dentists. It is our job to help them feel comfortable once they are in our office! This way, the dentist can help your child secure a healthy smile, and as they grow up, they can keep their teeth beautiful, clean, and healthy. Besides helping your child to practice good oral hygiene, eating a balanced diet will help to prevent any future dental issues.
Dental emergencies are not that uncommon, especially if your child plays sports. If your child has experienced an injury to the mouth, you should call your pediatric dentist immediately. Your pediatric dentist will be able to determine if treatment is needed. A good way to prevent oral sport-related injuries is to use a mouthguard.
