Pediatric Dental FAQ’s
If you are a parent and are nervous about your child’s first dental visit, St. Johnsbury Dental Associates is here to provide you with answers.
When Should I Schedule My Child's First Visit?
When should my child have dental X-rays taken?
Baby teeth are not permanent. Why do they need fillings/cleanings?
Does my child need dental sealants?
Sealants are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth and sometimes used to cover deep pits and grooves. You can protect your child’s teeth with sealants because they act as barriers to cavity-prone areas.
What should I do if my child sucks his thumb?
Thumb sucking can affect the roof of the mouth or how the teeth line up. The risk of dental problems is related to how often, how long, and how intensely your child sucks on his or her thumb. Try addressing the issue before the child reaches the age of three.
Have more questions about
our dental services?
When it comes to dental care procedures, much can be left unsaid. At St. Johnsbury Dental Associates, we want to keep you informed on what you will experience here.
Why do I need dental X-rays?
Will my dental insurance cover it?
There are usually time limits on services covered by your insurance. X-rays, fillings on the same tooth, crowns, and bridges on the same tooth, or fluoride treatments for children, can all have time limits. Contact us to discuss exactly what your insurance policy covers!
How long will it take?
An x-ray imaging exam usually takes no longer than 15 minutes, maybe 30 minutes. The amount of time it takes usually depends on what exact imaging exam we are performing and what we are looking for.
Will it hurt?
A dental x-ray exam should never cause any pain. If anything, it may be a little awkward and uncomfortable but it is a fairly short procedure that should not cause any harm.
