Your first visit
The American Dental Association recommends bringing your child in for their very first dental visit around one year of age or when they start cutting their first teeth. At this time, our experienced dental team will provide you with important information on teething and how to establish an effective home care routine. We will also conduct a risk assessment to determine your child’s likelihood of developing cavities or gum disease and provide helpful advice on preventing injuries to the mouth and teeth.
Effective preventative dental care
At AURA DENTAL, prevention is always the best policy when it comes to your child’s oral health. By seeing your children early in life, our experienced team can reduce the risks for dental decay or infections by teaching them the proper procedures for brushing and flossing. During the exam, we can also check for early signs of developing orthodontic problems or gum disease, many of which can be corrected or reduced in severity to ensure better long-term results.
