Has it been a while since your family saw our dentist? The school holidays are the perfect time to catch up on dental visits and any planned treatments.
According to research, over 40% of children aged between five and 10 have tooth decay in their baby teeth or primary teeth, but tooth decay is preventable with proper oral care. We thoroughly recommend that children see a dentist regularly, usually twice a year but sometimes more frequently for children who may have dental or other medical issues.
When we can see your child regularly, we can monitor their dental health closely, so any small signs of decay are quickly detected and treated, hopefully well before your child feels any discomfort or pain. We also recommend regular appointments with our hygienist, who can clean your child’s teeth professionally, a vital treatment for maintaining strong teeth and healthy gums.
These visits are a chance for you to ask questions about caring for your child’s teeth and receive valuable advice. If your child is older, we can work with them directly, ensuring they understand the importance of oral care and know how to brush and floss properly.
