Oral Hygiene is very important in early years to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Children should start to visit a professional children's dentist as young as 2 years of age. Bring them along with you to your dental check up. This helps the child to familiarise themselves with the surrounding noises and of course meeting the dentist and the dental team.
The first visit may just start with counting the teeth and looking for signs of early decay. The dentist will give advice on preventative care, diet and brushing.
Oral hygiene starts as soon as your child's first tooth erupts, generally around six months of age.
Speak with us early to ensure long lasting dental health for your child
