First Trip To Pediatric Dentist Ryan Davidson

During the first visit:

- The dentist will usually brush the parent's teeth.

- The child will sit on their parents lap.

- The dentist will show the child what tools they will use.

- The child will get a prize after.

Some tips are:

- Stop sucking habits. They lead to tooth decay.

- Use a pea-sized about of tooth paste on your child's tooth brush

- Help your toddler brush after breakfast and before bed for good hygiene because they don't have the dexterity to brush their teeth.

- Avoid starchy and sugary snacks

- Choose a soft, kid-sized brush

3 factors that influence child teeth:

- Heredity, food intake and environment
