When Should you Introduce your Child to the Dentist?
Our dentists encourage you to take your child to the dentist as soon as they start developing teeth.
As a parent, you are in a great position to help your child understand the importance of caring for their teeth and their dentist’s role in helping them do this. It helps too if they can also understand the nature of their coming adult teeth in light of the temporary nature of their baby teeth.
Your child’s first set of teeth forms the basis for their function and shapes their smile. It also establishes the foundation for their eating and speaking habits.
Our team of Mooloolaba child dentists and oral care experts will work closely with you to ensure your child’s dental health is sound and properly maintained. Regular dental visits, combined with the correct dental care techniques, is a plan that yields consistently good results.
How can you Avoid Tooth Decay in Children?
Child tooth decay is one of the most common dental issues seen by our CDBS bulk billing child dentists.
Children are more susceptible to tooth decay since the enamel in temporary teeth is much softer than permanent teeth. It would be wrong to assume that, considering their temporary nature, tooth decay in children’s teeth is no big deal. On the contrary, it can significantly impact the future of your child’s smile and jaw development.
Some common causes include regularly feeding your kid sugary and starchy foods like desserts, candies and sugary drinks, regularly feeding them acidic foods such as fruit and fruit juices, and not properly cleaning your kid’s teeth after meal time.
Prevention is better than a cure, so please don’t hesitate to ask our free children’s dentists for further advice on how best to avoid child tooth decay.
