Important Questions to Ask Your Child’s Dentist

An experienced children’s dentist can help your child achieve optimum oral health.

But many kids don’t like the dentist’s office. It’s no secret that the dentist’s office can be a scary place for children.

Asking the right questions can help you and your child get ready for the visit to the dentist.

Here are a few children’s dentistry questions to ask.

What does the children’s dental exam include?

Finding out exactly what a dental exam includes can help you prepare your child. Ask the dentist to explain how the appointment works and what treatments you can expect. For example, dental x-rays and fluoride treatments may be a part of at least one dental exam per year.

Which toothpaste should my child use?

There’s a lot of false information floating around about toothpaste. Asking your dentist can help you cut through the noise and choose the best toothpaste for your child. A kid’s dentist can provide you with some safe, effective toothpaste recommendations.

How can my child improve their brushing?

Brushing at home is a critical part of dental care. It’s important for kids to take this responsibility, but you also want to ensure they are brushing effectively. Asking your dentist for personalized advice is the best way to help your child brush better. During the dental exam, your child’s dentist will assess their at-home hygiene and provide helpful tips.

How should I handle my child’s chipped tooth?

Chipped teeth are a common problem in children, often due to rough play, sports, and normal accidents. Sometimes, a filling is helpful. For very small chips and/or chips on baby teeth, it may be best to leave the tooth be. Ask your dentist to take a look at the chipped tooth and determine the best course of action.
