It is a good habit to get into for parents to bring their children to the dentist from an early age. This prepares them for future visits, the earlier the visits begin the more relaxed the children will be. You should then take them for regular check ups as often as the dentist recommends.

Cleaning your child’s teeth should be a part of their daily routine and should begin as soon as the first teeth start to come through.

Try to limit sugary or acidic food and drinks to mealtimes only and if you want to give your child a snack try to stick to cheese, vegetables and fresh fruit.

It is important to supervise the cleaning until your child is at least seven. Once all of the teeth have come through use a small-headed soft toothbrush in small circular movements concentrating on one area at a time. Remember to brush behind teeth and onto the gums. Make tooth brushing a routine in the morning and last thing before your child goes to bed.

Always encourage your child and praise them for cleaning their teeth.  If you start to do this from their first tooth appearing the child will expect it and let you check without too much fuss!  Your dentist will show you how if you are unsure, so please ask.
