As parents, you want the best for your child, including excellent dental care. At Briglia Dental Group in West Chester, PA, we love seeing pediatric patients and making sure they have a positive experience. Developing good oral hygiene habits from an early age is essential for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Our team uses a combination of a friendly, fun attitude and modern techniques to make the entire dental visit comfortable. In fact, we make dentistry for children a fun experience.

Children’s dental needs can be very different than those of adults. Our experience allows us to provide age-appropriate care that gives your child the tools he or she needs for healthy habits and a positive association with the dentist.

Early childhood visits

We recommend bringing your child in for their first dental visit around the time they turn one. During this brief appointment, our main objective is to have your child become familiar with the dental office. We use the “Tell-Show-Do” technique to allow children to become comfortable with all the dental instruments that we use during appointments. We also encourage parents to try the following at home to help make the first visit positive:

  • Play “dentist with them” prior to the visit. The role playing can help them with what to expect
  • Read books together about visiting the dentist
  • Talk about your previous dental visits in a positive manner

During children’s dental visits, we examine the teeth, take x-rays when necessary, and evaluate oral development. Once needed, we will begin gentle cleanings and show you and your child proper technique for brushing and flossing at home.

Preventative dental care for children

In addition to exams, cleanings, and x-rays, we also provide preventative treatments that are effective in blocking the development of decay, such as topical fluoride application and dental sealants. We will discuss the need for these therapies as they arise.

Educational guidance for children

A large part of our role as dental care providers is empowering our patients to take a proactive role in their oral health. We accomplish this by providing parents and children with the resources to effectively keep their teeth and gums healthy such as nutritional guidance, brushing and flossing techniques, and injury prevention.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your first appointment will involve a comprehensive exam so that Dr. Briglia can provide you with a treatment plan that addresses any problems. We’ll discuss your medical history, why you’ve come to our practice, and any general concerns you have. Dr. Briglia will review your past dental x-rays or take new updated digital x-rays in order to diagnose any problems that cannot be seen clinically. We’ll review your past medical and dental history, and complete a clinical examination which includes a TMJ/Jaw Joint exam, an oral cancer screening, a tooth by tooth exam, a check for periodontal gum disease, and a check for bone loss around your teeth. In addition to the services above, we will also take a series of intraoral photographs in order to have a record of your actual teeth and gums for future diagnostic and insurance purposes

If you’re a new patient, we ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment so that we can be sure all paperwork is completed. You can get a head start on this process by downloading our new patient form online! Once your form is completed, please keep a copy for your records and bring a copy to the office. Call us today at (610) 615 0160 with additional questions or schedule your first appointment online when you’re ready.

Briglia Dental Group is always accepting new patients! Request an appointment online or give us call at (610) 615 0160 to request more information about our new patient process.

If you have dental x-rays that were taken within the last 12 months, we’ll ask you to call your previous dental practice to have them send us any records or x-rays they have on file. If you don’t have current x-rays, whether we’ll take new ones on your first visit really depends upon your dental history. We may recommend taking new x-rays to get a complete look at your teeth. X-rays allow us to check for bone fractures, cysts, tumors, lesions, and sinus issues.

If it’s appropriate, you may be able to have your teeth cleaned the same day as your first appointment. If we diagnosed that you have gum disease and bone loss, we’ll review treatment options with you at that time. In general, your first appointment will not include any dental treatments or cleanings. Before scheduling any treatments, Dr. Briglia will need to complete a comprehensive exam so that he can provide you with a treatment plan that addresses any problems.
