General Dentistry - Family Dental Care

 

Our dental clinic welcomes your children with always renewed pleasure. Their first visit may be six months after the eruption of the first teeth. We recommend not to exceed the age of two. Of course, don't hesitate to bring your child to our clinic whenever you want, if you suspect a possible problem.

If necessary, he may recommend a consultation with a specialist in pediatric dentistry, an orthodontist, specialist in the treatment of dental malocclusions, or other professionals, such as a speech therapist or physiotherapist.

The first visit can also be used to familiarize the child with our staff and our environment, in order to gain confidence. For that, you can count on us! Thanks to a gentle and playful approach, our staff will do anything to make him feel comfortable.

It is important that your child adopts good oral health habits early on. Your help is then essential. Our dental hygienist will show you how to properly brush and floss your teeth. So you can help him around the house. These good habits will help promote oral health in adolescence and then in adulthood. Making brushing time enjoyable will also help motivate your child to take care of their teeth on a daily basis. For example, you can buy him a light-up toothbrush, sing him a rhyme while brushing, and / or put an hourglass or stopwatch in the bathroom so he can get a feel for the time.

During subsequent visits, the dentist can advise you on preventive care, such as sealants. These will protect the teeth against decay.

 

To prepare your child for their first visit

If your child is apprehensive about going to the dentist for the first time, it is important to prepare. You can for example:

  • Explain to him what the dentist and dental hygienist are used for
  • Specify the course of the visit
  • Preferably make an appointment in the morning. He will be more receptive at this time of the day.
  • Have a positive attitude yourself. It will help him to have confidence in himself.

Hope to see you and your child!
