What is Children's Dentistry?
How Does Children's Dentistry Work?
Children’s dentistry operates on the principle of providing specialized dental care that caters to the unique needs and sensitivities of young patients. Dr. Zemskova and our staff are trained to create a child-friendly and comfortable environment, using age-appropriate techniques and communication skills to ensure that children feel at ease during their dental visits.
During a children’s dentistry appointment, Dr. Zemskova will typically perform a comprehensive oral examination, assess the child’s dental growth and development, and identify any dental issues or concerns. She may also provide preventive treatments such as fluoride applications to strengthen the teeth or dental sealants to protect against cavities. If necessary, Dr. Zemskova may recommend further treatments such as fillings, extractions, or orthodontic intervention.
Frequently Asked Questions
When should I take my child for their first dental visit?
It is recommended to take your child for their first dental visit by their first birthday or within six months of their first tooth erupting. Early dental visits help establish a dental home and allow Dr. Zemskova to monitor your child’s oral health from an early age.
How often should my child visit the dentist?
Regular dental check-ups are typically recommended every six months for children. However, the frequency of visits may vary depending on your child’s oral health needs and the recommendations of Dr. Zemskova.
How can I help my child maintain good oral hygiene habits?
Encouraging good oral hygiene habits starts at home. Help your child brush their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, assist with flossing, and encourage a healthy diet low in sugary foods and drinks. Regularly visit our office for professional cleanings and guidance on proper oral care techniques for your children.
What can I expect during my child's dental visit?
During a children’s dental visit, Dr. Zemskova will perform a comprehensive oral examination, clean the teeth, and assess the need for any preventive treatments such as fluoride applications or dental sealants. Dr. Zemskova will also provide guidance on oral hygiene practices and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
