It is worth taking a child around 2-3 years of age for a check-up visit, because he is already able to cooperate with the dentist – he understands his instructions and is able to carry them out. You can also visit the dentist around 1 year of age – the doctor will advise you on what to prepare for and how to proceed during the teething period.
Don’t wait for your child to complain of toothache before taking them to the dentist. Then treatment is likely to be necessary, which will put him under stress. It is worth focusing on effective prophylaxis so that treatment is not necessary as long as possible, and the toddler himself can get used to the office and dentist during check-up visits. Thanks to this, in the future, he will visit the dentist not only without fear, but even with a smile.
At the Twój Uśmiech Dental Center, we organize adaptation visits for the youngest patients. These are meetings during which the child gets to know the dentist, gets used to the office, chair and other equipment. An adaptation visit does not include any checks or treatment. The dentist tells about the teeth and their hygiene, and if the child is interested – shows the dental tools.
Thanks to this approach, children do not have concerns about the dentist, they come to the first visit with a smile and are more willing to cooperate with the doctor.
