From the moment teeth start to emerge at around six months, they need regular care and attention.
While most of the work is done at home, we can help out with regular appointments to make sure that everything is developing as it should.
We recommend that you bring your child to see us when they first start teething so they can get used to the sights, smells and sounds of the dental practice, thus encouraging a more relaxed approach to attending appointments.
You should start to clean teeth as soon as they appear and continue this as children get older with supervised brushing twice a day. Flossing can also be introduced when teeth start to touch each other. Child dental appointments also involve teaching young ones on how to look after their teeth at home when they are old enough.
We also provide treatments such as fissure sealants that give young teeth the best chance of staying healthy throughout their lifetime.
As well as cleaning teeth, you should also pay attention to your child’s diet making sure they don’t consume too much sugary food and fizzy drinks.
