Oral Care For Children
When Should Your Children Visit A Dentist?
Parents are advised to bring their children for their first dental check up within the first year of age, or as early as when their first tooth comes in.
During the visit, our dentists will assess their oral health and provide oral home care advice to reduce the risk of them developing tooth decay.
How Frequently Should My Children Visit the Dentist?
Depending on the oral condition and risk of your children getting tooth decay, our dentists will recommend the frequency of your children’s dental checkups.
In general, your children should visit the dentist at least once every 6 months, so that any tooth decay can be detected and treated early.
Why Are Early Childhood Dental Visits Important?
The sooner children begin their regular dental checkups, the healthier their mouths will stay.
Early dental visits help prevent tooth decay and cavities, which can lead to pain, trouble concentrating at school and other issues.
Children with healthy teeth are able to chew food easily, learn to speak clearly and smile with confidence.
Early Orthodontic Treatment
What’s Early Orthodontic Treatment ?
Sometimes, your children may require some early treatments done to help their teeth grow into an ideal position and prevent future dental problems.
Early treatment begins when a child still has many of their baby teeth.
Early treatment guides the teeth into a more ideal position, preserves space for adult teeth to erupt, and reduces the risk of injuring protruding teeth. It also helps with the proper growth of their jaw bones.
