Frequently Asked Questions on Children's Dentistry

When should I bring my child to the dentist and how often?

We recommend that children as young as 2.5 years of age can be brought in for their first dental check up to ensure that all the baby teeth are growing correctly and are healthy. 

We also recommend coming for regular check up and cleans every 6 months to monitor progress and changes. 

Why should I bring my child to the dentist from a young age?

It is important to start young because baby teeth matter as much as the adult teeth.  A child has 20 baby teeth and they are all out by the age of 2.5-3 years old.

The baby teeth can stay in the mouth up to the age of 12 years old and premature loss of baby teeth can cause crowding and spacing issues for the adult teeth.  So it is important to have regular check up, scales and cleans to ensure your child's teeth and bones are healthy and developing properly.

 

We believe in a wholistic approach to dentistry meaning we don't just want to care about their teeth and mouth, but also your child's overal health and wellbeing. 

Did you know that your child's airways, breathing and sleeping habits may be related to their jaw and teeth development?    

What happens at the dental appointment for my child?

The first appointment will generally just involve an examination of the teeth, gums, and tongue. Depending on their age, subsequent appointments may involve scales and cleans and fluoride treatment. In circumstances where we find cavities and tooth decay, we will inform you and advise on the appropriate type and approach to treatment.  

We want to provide you with a thorough understanding of your child's dental health and inform you of any issues that may require treatment.
