We also offer a variety of sedation services, including in-house nitrous oxide, oral sedation, IV sedation, and hospital dentistry. 

 

How Old Should Kids/Patients be to Visit Our Pediatric Dentistry in Lincoln?

Make a Smile recommends that pediatric dental care should begin when a child’s first teeth begin to appear. This generally happens around the age of six months old. Children should have lost all of their baby-teeth by 12 or 13 years of age. Many teen patients continue to schedule services from pediatric dentists and orthodontists well into their teenage years.

 

Your Children’s First Visit to Our Lincoln Pediatric Office

You might come into our office more anxious than your child on his or her first visit or appointment, so try your best to stay relaxed! Our Make a Smile Lincoln pediatric dentistry office is full of state-of-the-art technology and vastly different than the office you remember as a child. You will be delighted to see how comfortable you and your child will feel. A positive outlook on dentistry starts with your child’s first dental visit, and aids in successfully creating a life-long preventative plan for your child. Your child’s first visit in Lincoln, CA should be scheduled as soon as their first teeth begin to erupt or before their first birthday. At your first visit to our Lincoln location, you can expect:

  • A thorough review of your child’s medical and dental history
  • Helpful tips on keeping your child’s teeth clean after nursing or
    bottle-feeding
  • Instruction on proper brushing techniques to avoid decay
  • A comprehensive, non-invasive exam to check soft tissue and
    tooth eruption
  • A visit to the toy chest!

You may join your child during treatment at our Lincoln office at any time; however, we also welcome you to enjoy movies, toys, and video games with your other children in our dentistry reception area. If you do plan on accompanying your child during dental treatment, try not to bring other children to that appointment, as space is limited. You should continue bringing in your child every six months to our Lincoln location following their first appointment for evaluations and professional cleanings.
