When is the right time to bring my child in for their first check-up?
It is never too early to start dental visits, but generally, we recommend bringing your child in when their first tooth erupts or by the age of two years; whichever comes first. This allows our family dentists to better track their dental development and make sure their teeth emerge properly, minimising the possibility of braces later in life.
Why are primary (milk) teeth so important?
Your child’s primary teeth are vital for not only their dental development but also their overall development. This is because teeth are a necessity for speaking, forming words and eating. If your child’s teeth are not in good condition, it could impact their development and impair their learning process at a crucial time in their life. Our professional team at our Southport dental practice are dedicated to the health and development of your child’s smile, and will only recommend treatment if it is within your child’s best interests.
My infant has not yet started teething, do I still need to clean their mouth?
The simple answer to this is YES! Even when our children do not have teeth, they are still susceptible to gum disease. Clean your infant’s smile with a clean damp cloth after every feed to help remove any bacteria in the mouth that could damage their gums. It is also important not to put your child to bed with juice or milk, as these liquids are high in sugars and can impact your child’s oral health.
