    It is important that children develop good oral habits as they can continue with these habits into adulthood and help them maintain healthy and clean teeth. It is commonly assumed that baby teeth are not as important because they will eventually fall out, but the condition of one's baby teeth may impact the development of their adult teeth!

    It is suggested that a child's first dental appointment should be around the age of 1 (or when their first teeth start coming out). During the child's dental appointment, our dentist will examine the condition of their teeth and gums. They will provide dental cleaning with topical fluoride and some information on how to continue good oral hygiene at home.

    How to reduce your child's dental anxiety and fear

    Kids are known to have a fear of the dentist, so here are a few tips on how to help them overcome this fear:

    • Start young: the earlier your children are exposed to the dentist, the better.
    • Watch your words: Avoid words like "hurt" or "pain" when talking about the dentist, as this will only scare them. Try rephrasing when describing dental processes, such as saying that the dentist is "looking for sugar bugs" or "counting your teeth".
    • Avoid bribery: try not to promise a treat if they behave well at the dentist because it might make them wonder what there is to be scared of or anxious about.
    • Explain the importance of oral hygiene: teach your child that good oral health is necessary so that they can continue to eat and smile with no problems.

    Here's what to expect during your child's first visit to our Richmond Hill dental office:

    • Examine their mouth, teeth, and gums
    • Evaluate to see if they have any existing habits (such as thumb-sucking)
    • Assess whether a fluoride treatment is needed
    • Educate on teeth and gum maintenance at home
    • Suggest how often they should visit us
