Pediatric Dentistry Q & A

How do I get my child ready for their first dental visit?

Your child’s first dental visit can have a long-term impact on their dental health. For this reason, Dr. Nazir ensures your child has a calm, pleasant experience at every visit, teaching them everything they need to know about caring for their teeth and overall oral health.

To help keep your child relaxed and ready for their visit to the dentist, you can start talking to them about the positive things that happen at a dental office. Use age-appropriate language to discuss possible things Dr. Nazir will do during the examination.

Dr. Nazir also recommends reading the following books with your child to help them understand what might happen:

  • “The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist”— by Stan and Jan Berenstain
  • “Show Me Your Smile!: A Visit to the Dentist” — part of the Dora the Explorer series
  • “Going to the Dentist” — by Anne Civardi
  • “Elmo Visits the Dentist” — part of the Sesame Street series

Feel free to bring along your child’s favorite toy on the day of the visit to help them feel more comfortable. The staff at Smiles N Braces are also available to answer specific questions you have leading up to your child’s first visit.

What pediatric dental services are available?

Dr. Nazir addresses a variety of dental issues common in children. She can provide routine checkups and cleanings to protect against decay and disease. Additionally, Dr. Nazir offers comprehensive treatment and in-office services, including:

  • Dental appliances
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Pediatric orthodontics
  • Monitoring of teeth development

For children with existing dental issues, Dr. Nazir performs in-office pediatric root canals, a common procedure also known as pulp therapy that can preserve your child’s natural teeth.

Dr. Nazir can also provide helpful resources for complications resulting from pacifier or sippy cup use, teeth grinding, and thumb-sucking. She also offers perinatal dental care for pregnant women, as well as infant oral care assistance.

How often should I schedule pediatric dental checkups?

To keep your child’s health in optimal condition, Dr. Nazir recommends routine checkups every six months. Regular checkups also allow Dr. Nazir the opportunity to identify dental problems as early as possible, so treatments can be more effective.
