Starting a Future of Healthy Hygiene Habits!
Your child’s first visit to the dentist is an important milestone in their life. It establishes lifelong practices and techniques they need to maintain a healthy and strong smile. At John M. Yancey DDS, we want to give your child as pleasant of an experience as possible so they feel comfortable walking through our doors and leave looking forward to their next visit.
The first appointment at the dentist can be nerve-racking for both the parent and their child, which is why we want to share exactly what our families can expect. To begin, we will perform a thorough examination to ensure your child’s teeth are growing and functioning as they should be. Then, a quick but efficient cleaning is done by one of our hygienists to prevent any decay or bacteria. Throughout the visit, we’ll share healthy tips for your child to try themselves at home!
A cavity can be an extremely uncomfortable time for your child. When faced with a cavity, Dr. Yancey will gently remove the decay, clean the area and use tooth-colored, composite fillings to restore the tooth’s function and appearance.
