Introducing your child to the dentist from an early age is vital. They recognise it as an essential yet fun place to visit. They can normalise the experience of sitting in the dental chair, lying back on the dental chair and having their teeth examined with a small dental mirror and a bright light. Children who normalise this experience have better long-term dental health and awareness.
Children's mouths develop over a period of time. They grow a set of baby (deciduous) teeth, which then fall out over time to be replaced by adult ( permanent) teeth.
It is important to consider diet and oral hygiene at all times to protect their teeth.
Sports guards are also vital if your child plays any form of sport. Custom made sports guards are far superior to any purchased in the sports shop. They provide a superior fit, superior protection and can be customised with a choice of colours and the addition of their name.
