When and what is my child’s first “regular” visit?
The first “regular” dental visit is at 6 months and should be no later than your child’s first birthday. At this appointment, we will gently examine your child’s teeth and gums.
At every dental appointment, we will brush teeth, floss, apply fluoride and discuss nutritional info fit for the child’s age. X-rays may be taken in order to reveal decay and check on the progress of your child’s permanent teeth under the gums. We may clean your child’s teeth and apply topical fluoride to help protect the teeth against decay. We will make sure your child is receiving adequate fluoride at home.
Most important of all, we will review with you how to clean and care for your child’s teeth. Call today to begin quality pediatric dental care for your child.

Children who are very young or who have a high level of anxiety that interferes with the cooperation necessary for the dentist to perform treatment may require some level of sedation. Sedation is also helpful for special needs children. There are many safe and effective drugs available today that can help relax the child and promote a good environment for optimal and safe dental treatment.
Conscious sedation is an option for children who are older (six years or more) and are mildly apprehensive. This highly effective method can be administered in oral form or in an inhalation method using nitrous oxide (N2O-02).
Deep sedation is sometimes necessary for children that are unable, by either age or maturity level, to cooperate during dental treatment. Our practice utilizes a certified anesthesiologist for cases where the patient may pose a threat to their own safety during treatment. This will be discussed with the parents/ guardians of the patient before treatment to ensure the optimum beneficial outcome.
The following patients may be candidates for sedation during their visit.
- Children who require major treatment
- The very anxious child
- Children that have had traumatic dental experiences (sound and smell aversion)
- Children with a strong gag reflex
- Children who are medically compromised or who are mentally handicapped
At Jamboree Dentistry we make every effort to administer local anesthetics in a slow, gentle and comfortable manner, thus eliminating any pain that may accompany dental treatment.
The duration of numbness after treatment varies from patient to patient and what drug was used. Generally the numbness wears off after 2 to 3 hours. Parents must be careful to watch their child for chewing or biting of inner cheeks or tongue which can become injured.
