Dental care should begin at an early age. Plaque will begin to form as soon as a child’s first tooth arrives. Brushing teeth twice a day, a balanced diet and regular check ups at the dentist is essential to ensuring healthy teeth and gums for life.
In line with advice from Public Health England, your child should see a dentist from six months, as that’s when their first teeth usually come through. Do not wait until they have toothache.
- Provides your child with the best possible chance of life long strong teeth and good oral health.
- Prevents little problems becoming big problems.
- Familiarises your child with visiting the dentist.
- Allows for preventative treatments and education for a life of healthy problem free teeth.
Protect your child’s teeth by planning for their routine examinations and hygiene visits and makes their treatment more affordable by spreading payment throughout the year.
