We provide dental treatments to your child by specialized dentists with the experience and qualifications to care for your child’s teeth, gums and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.
When should I take my child to the dentist for the first check-up?
First dental visit should be carried out as soon as the first tooth erupts; which happens on average around 6 months of age, and no later than the child's first birthday.
How often does my child need to see the dentist?
A check-up every six months is recommended in order to prevent cavities and other dental problems.
what should we expect during our first dental visit?
Early visits allow the child to get used to dental office environment and that staff, which would make the need of any treatments in the futures easily accomplished.
Usually during the first visit we start by a program of preventive how care instructions; as introducing brushing techniques suitable to the child's age, diet instructions and facts about certain habits as finger sucking/Pacifier use to reduce the risk of dental treatment needs in the future.
A decay risk assessment is done as well.
Information about how to prevent injuries to the mouth and teeth to the up-growing child, as well as the child's growth and development.
why are Baby teeth (primary teeth/milky teeth) important?
The main aim is to keep a healthy dentition until the secondary ones come out since the primary ones help in;
- Maintain good nutrition as they help the child to chew properly
- primary teeth are involved in speech development
- Primary/baby teeth save the space in the child's jaw for the secondary/Permanent teeth and guiding them into the correct position.
Besides decay/infections spread through primary/baby teeth much faster than Permanent/secondary ones, and in such instances, infections could affect the permanent ones even before they could come out.
