Harrisburg, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/09/2013 -- American Dental Care in Harrisburg, a leading dentist in Harrisburg, is pleased to announce they have added another video to their growing educational video library. The newest video is about the first pediatric exam for a child and the importance of their experience.
The first pediatric dental exam for a child will set the stage for their experience at the dentist going forward. Getting a child into the dentist at an early age will not only increase their comfort level, but will start the relationship with their dentist at an early age. The very first appointment for the child should take place sometime between the age of 1 and by the time they lose their first tooth. Most dentists agree that the earlier the better to get the child acclimated to the environment. At the first appointment, the parent will usually sit in the chair with the child on their lap. The dentist or hygienist will count their teeth and show them all the instruments. The first appointment may or may not include a dental checkup or cleaning. It may just be an introduction. Going forward at the next appointment, the dentist or hygienist will clean the child’s teeth, apply fluoride, and take x-rays if needed. They will also talk to the parents about any oral habits the child may have like a pacifier, tongue thrusting, thumb sucking, or lip sucking. Any of these habits can effect the development of the child’s teeth. The dentist will also discuss proper nutrition and good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing.
When in need of a Harrisburg dentist, contact American Dental Care in Harrisburg to set up an appointment for a pediatric dental visit. It’s important to start good habits early and they will discuss the importance of a check up and dental cleaning every 6 months.
