Your Child’s First Visit to our Practice
At around one-year-old, we see your child for the first time. This visit is a no pressure, meet and greet appointment at which time Dr. Narodovich will perform a visual exam to see if there are any concerns that need close attention. He will gently count your child’s primary teeth and begin an individualized plan to keep their smile healthy throughout childhood and into adulthood.
Our Antelope children’s dental office is equipped with televisions and family-friendly programming to keep your child entertained during their visit. To complete their visit, we have prizes and balloons available, leaving them with a positive feeling about the dentist.
Education and Prevention
Educating preschool and older children on good oral health care habits is emphasized at our dental practice. We illustrate proper brushing and flossing techniques and explain the importance of a healthy smile. As our young patients approach their teens, we encourage them to be diligent in their home oral care routines and to avoid unhealthy habits that can be detrimental to their dental health.
Prevention for our younger patients starts with a comprehensive examination at their first appointment, including x-rays, fluoride treatments, and regular cleanings. When your child is about seven years old, Dr. Narodovich will perform an early intervention exam to check for any possible orthodontic concerns. We have techniques in place at our dental practice that can reduce or avoid some future orthodontic treatments when used while your child’s bite is still maturing. These methods can also help correct the misalignment of teeth due to thumb sucking and tongue thrusting.
For children who grind their teeth, early orthodontic intervention is available to prevent damage to dental enamel and jaw function.
