Your child’s first smile is a magical moment and their first tooth is a momentous occasion in their life.
With a relaxed, friendly environment and a highly experienced, child friendly team you may be rest assured that your child's precious oral health development is in safe, caring and reliable hands.
A lifetime of good dental health starts in infancy. That’s why we believe in prevention and early intervention. It is important to form good habits and positive experiences at an early age. Therefore prevention of dental problems is our main focus.
We understand that children may feel apprehensive about visiting the dentist, that’s why all of our team provide a welcoming and caring experience for all children visiting the practice. As a result, at their check-up appointment your child or children will feel more at ease and familiar with the dental environment. We believe in establishing a personal bond with every family and child in our practice and welcoming them to our practice family.
The best way to ensure your children keep their teeth clean is to build it in to their daily routine. If you find you need to assist them, gently cradle their chin, whilst standing behind them is a great way to reach the top and bottom teeth in their mouth. As soon as you see their teeth first appearing, use a small child’s tooth brush with a pea sized amount of a children’s tooth paste.
We recommend that you supervise your children brushing their teeth until they are around 7 years old. Once all their teeth are through, you should use a larger brush and break the mouth down in to small sections. Brush in a circular motion in each section before moving on to the next.
Encouraging your children to adopt this routine, and brush twice a day will certainly help them in later life and maintaining a healthy, happy smile.
