Children should receive their first dental checkup about six months after their first tooth emerges.
The initial dental appointment promises an enjoyable experience, aiming to acquaint the child with the dental environment. During this appointment, we will perform an examination and administer teeth polishing. Furthermore, there will be a discussion about oral hygiene and dietary guidance. Additionally, it presents an excellent opportunity to address any inquiries or concerns you may have about your child’s dental health.
Children should conscientiously brush their teeth twice daily: once in the morning, preferably after breakfast, and once more before bedtime, to ensure impeccable oral hygiene.
Children under three years can initiate tooth brushing with fluoride-free training toothpaste. As they reach around three years old, the age at which they can effectively rinse and spit, it becomes suitable to introduce and consistently use fluoride-containing toothpaste.
Fluoride-containing toothpaste enhances tooth enamel, reducing the risk of bacteria that can lead to tooth decay affecting the teeth.
Absolutely! Children should adhere to the same flossing regimen as adults, aiming to floss at least once daily.
Indeed! It’s a recommendation that we should assist our children with brushing until they reach approximately eight years of age.
Sealants are protective coatings that are applied to the grooves of permanent teeth to prevent the formation of cavities. Typically, dentists usually implant them when the permanent molars have fully erupted.
Indeed, dental decay can develop as soon as children have teeth. Given that dental decay tends to progress more swiftly in children, it is prudent to follow the dentist’s prescribed schedule for regular X-ray examinations.
Typically, children tend to experience the shedding of their initial lower front incisor at around 4.5 to 7 years of age, coinciding with the eruption of their six-year molars.
Children can have an orthodontic assessment as early as 7-8 years of age, and the dentist will advise when it’s suitable for a consultation with an orthodontist.
