PROTECTING CHILDREN’S TEETH.

It is the Easter holidays, so time to book an appointment at the dentist before eating all that chocolate!

It is a good idea for parents to bring their children to the dentist with them at 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 – usually every six months.

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 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 as this will often get the best results.
