DENTAL VISITS FOR CHILDREN

It is important for parents to bring children to the Dentist with them as soon as possible.  The earlier the visits begin the more relaxed the children will be.  You should then bring them for regular check ups as often as the Dentist recommends.

Cleaning your child’s teeth should be a part of their daily hygiene 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  stick to cheese or raw vegetables like carrot sticks.

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, sing a song that lasts for 2 minutes to try and make it more fun!

Always encourage your child and praise them, this will often get results.
