Top Pediatric Dentist in Rockwall, Texas
Children should visit Dr. Schweers by their first birthday. As soon as teeth are visible, it is appropriate to brush them twice each day using a soft,toothbrush and a small amount of fluoridated toothpaste, as this would be safe if swallowed and to prevent cavities and mineralize the teeth. It is important that your child’s newly-erupted teeth (erupting at six to 12 months of age) receive proper dental care and benefit from proper oral hygiene habits right from the beginning.
First, we will show your child the dental chair, toothbrush, demonstrate any noises in the dental office that they will typically hear, and introduce our dental team so that your child is more comfortable and not as nervous. We will also introduce them to “Allie” the alligator to show them how we “gently tickle the sugar bugs off the teeth.”
What are Infant Happy Visits? Well, here at Genuine Dentistry, infant visits are to review growth and developments of your child’s mouth. This exam is recommended around 6 months of age or when the first tooth is seen. This helps us identify any atypical growth patterns and allows us to address smaller issues before they progress to larger problems that might require a more invasive treatment. We also review proper oral hygiene and diet with you. The visit is typically very short (30-45 mins total). Overall, the main focus is to inform you, the parent, of expected growth milestones and the ideal way to maintain good oral health for your child as they grow.
From the initial appointment at a child’s first birthday to their graduation, it’s our goal to guide every patient to great oral and overall health! Our kid-centered practice is committed to providing the highest quality pediatric dental care through genuine concern, clear communication and clinical excellence. Dr. Schweers is specifically trained in the care of children and their “little teeth,” so you can rest assured in the care provided.
