Your Child's First Dental Visit to Nicole E. Pagonis, DDS
Our first dental visit with your son or daughter focuses on keeping them feeling comfortable and secure. We recommend seeing your child by their first year, or within six months of their first tooth emerges. Their first dental visit in Los Gatos shouldn't last longer than 30 minutes to an hour.
Depending on how old your child is, our first visit together may incorporate an examination of their teeth, gums, jaw joints, and tissues so we can keep track of their development. If a gentle cleaning is needed, we will make the experience as pleasant and stress-free as we can. This includes identifying any tooth decay and polishing their teeth to remove any built-up plaque.
During our visits together, our dental team will demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques. If fluoride treatments or dental sealants are needed, we can provide any preventive dental service.
If your child's baby teeth fall out, we will ensure that they do so in a timely manner in order to rely on placeholders for permanent adult teeth. We may use digital x-rays to identify jammed teeth or other dental disorders.
