Inside Pretoria Bridge Dental's Ottawa offices


Your first appointment will likely be more detailed than most checkups and cleanings to allow your dentist a thorough look at your teeth. This appointment usually involves a detailed examination of your teeth, an x-ray of your mouth and a conversation with your dentist to discuss your previous dental history. This first appointment allows you and your dentist to become acquainted, and lets your dentist find out what best suits your dental needs.

Children should come for their first dentist appointment around the time when their teeth start coming in, or when they are 1 – 3 years old. While most children are unlikely to have dental problems, it is always best to be sure.

If ever you have any concerns about your child’s oral health, don’t hesitate to contact us!

A child’s first dentist appointment is in part about examining and cleaning the teeth, but it is also about getting them comfortable with their dentist and the dental office. Having a positive experience at the dentist at a young age helps make children more comfortable with dental visits.

There are many things that you can do to help make sure that your teeth stay clean. The most important thing is to brush your teeth 2 – 3 times a day, once should be before you go to sleep at night. Make sure that you are using a toothbrush that is comfortable and doesn’t cause you pain. You should replace your toothbrush every 2 – 3 months, or sooner if the bristles become worn. We recommend a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste for those over the age of 3 years old. Regular flossing also helps to keep oral hygiene up to a good standard.
