Caring for your children’s teeth.

It is at an early stage of childhood that we should try to establish healthy habits to our children’s teeth. A quick pain free dental check-up, will get them used to the noises, smells, surroundings and will prepare them for future visits. The earlier the visit begins the more relaxed the child will be.

Your child will remember playing with the “magic chair” and getting a sticker after the dentist counts their teeth. By getting early check-ups it allows your dentist to spot small problems and easily seal them, preventing the need for fillings. Sealants are a safe and painless way of protecting your teeth from decay.

A sealant is a protective coating applied to the surface of the biting surfaces of the back teeth. The sealant forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay.

Tooth ache is upsetting especially in children and the main cause is tooth decay. This is due to too much sugar, too often in the diet and poor brushing, cleaning your child’s teeth should be part of their twice daily routine.
