When should I first take my child to the dentist?
The importance of caring for your children’s teeth cannot be stressed enough. Good habits begun early ensure that good oral health will be theirs for many years to come. It is recommended that you take your child to the dentist around the time of their first tooth coming in although if your baby has no dental trouble this can be delayed. Also if you believe that your child has any dental problems, if you need reassurance or if they have a medical condition which can affect their teeth then the earlier you both see the dentist, the better.
Early Treatment Makes a Happy Child!
The benefits of an early visit to the dentist are vast as infants have no learned or conditioned fear of dental treatment. This in turn will allow your little one to become used to getting their teeth examined and will acquaint them with the surgery environment so that in later years when they need a procedure they will be confident and happy that they are getting taken good care of.
Help and Advice
Your child’s dentist will be able to offer help and friendly advice to both you and your little ones. They will help guide and teach your children with regards to how to make tooth brushing fun and also how to do this correctly. They can give help, support and advice on how to introduce healthier foods and on how to cut down sugary sweet and acidic plaque attacking snacks. If your child won’t let go of their night time bottle of juice or baby formula then your dentist can advise you so that your kids’ teeth stay healthy for a very long time.
Fluoride Facts
Your dentist will discuss with you whether your child is getting enough fluoride as by around six months of age babies need this supplemented in their diets. Your kid’s dentist will discuss with you whether or not your child needs fluoride supplements in order to keep their teeth strong and healthy. Fluoride is an important aspect of your child’s healthy teeth plan as it aids tooth development and prevents cavities.
