What Will Happen During Your Teen's First Dental Visit at First Choice Dental
For older children, a first dental visit will include most elements of an adult visit, with a super gentle approach that keeps in mind the needs of slightly younger patients.
- We'll take x-rays so that the dentist can monitor the development of young teeth, as well as permanent teeth below the gum's surface
- We'll have our dental hygienist clean your teeth and check to see how at-home brushing and flossing are going
- Your Madison Wi dentist at First Choice Dental will examine your child's teeth, answer any questions that you may have and recommend any future treatment that may be needed
- Your Madison Wi dentist at First Choice Dental may also discuss age-appropriate treatment for your child such as sealants or fluoride for prevention of cavities, or orthodontic care.
You may also ask the dentist or hygienist any questions you may have about tooth development, orthodontics, dentist-recommended foods or products, or anything else that pertains to your child's oral health. First Choice Dental also offers a free online resource on our Facebook page called Ask First Choice Dental which is available to you anytime 24/7 for submitting your dental-related question online to our dentists.
How often should your teen visit your First Choice Dental dentist? Based on how your child's teeth look, your dentist will let you know when to make the next visit. In most cases, First Choice Dental recommends that patients see the dentist every six months - as long as there are no major problems.
