YOUR CHILD’S FIRST VISIT


How young is too young? The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children see a dentist as soon as the eruption of their first tooth, between 6 – 12 months. At Waukee Dental, you child’s first visit does not have to be a scary one. We will take our time and let your child be in control.

We allow children to sit in the chair or on your lap … while watching cartoons! If they allow it, Dr. Brown will county their teeth and help them brush. We want the first visit to be a positive experience that leaves your child excited to return for their regular exam and cleanings.

PREVENTION


Prevention is key! At your child’s dental visits, we will discuss proper diet and brushing techniques. We will discuss preventative treatments such as fluoride and dental sealants to help your child stay cavity free!

Dental decay can start at a young age … that’s why early diagnosis and prevention treatment are important to your child’s oral health.

We provide the following dental services to children;

  • Dental teeth cleaning
  • Dental examinations and x-rays
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Cavity treatments
  • Sealants
    • The pits and grooves of your teeth are prime areas for opportunistic decay. Even regular brushing sometimes misses some of these intricate structures on the chewing surfaces of your teeth.
    • A sealant is a thin coating applied to the chewing surface. It’s designed to prevent the intrusion of bacteria and other debris into the deep crevices on the tops of your teeth. Today, sealants are becoming widely effective and popular for your children because, in many cases, decay has not set in. Even on teeth where decay is present, sealants have been shown to fight additional damage.
    • Sealants usually need re-application every 5 – 10 years.
  • ┬áCustom mouth guards
  • Nitrous sedation
  • Plus, more!
