Mums and Dads who visit our practice often ask when they should start bringing their children to the dentist to begin check-ups. It is never too early (or too late for that matter) in life to begin caring for your teeth. As soon as your child has milk teeth (also called ‘primary’ or ‘baby’ teeth) emerging you can bring them to see us. At this age, they will easily get accustomed to visiting the dentist and start developing good dental habits. We can also identify any early orthodontic issues.
Your child’s milk teeth play a vital role in their dental development, as they help them to:
– Form words and the ability to speak
– Chew foods properly
– Form strong, correctly positioned adult teeth
Bringing your child in early helps us track their dental development and treat any issues as they arise before they become problematic. Early intervention is always the most effective strategy for helping your child maintain good oral health and make dental visits a normal part of life.
Preventive care is beneficial to patients of all ages and should begin as early as possible. It is essential that all members of your family know how to attain good dental health and form good habits such as brushing twice daily and flossing at least once a day.
A home away from home
At Nick Sheptooha Dental Practice we love kids, so we strive to make their visit as fun and educational as possible. We will make it a fun learning experience with goody bags designed around their dental needs and ‘rides’ on the dental chair. Your family will feel right at home in our warm, relaxing and welcoming atmosphere.
Waiting can be the worst thing to a child so we have set up a great area for your child to be entertained while you receive your treatment. To help them feel happy and occupied while waiting, we have a special play area filled with toys, games, colouring in books, DVDs and a PlayStation, where they will be under the supervision of our Blue Card Staff Member.
At Nick Shepthooha Dental Practice we believe everyone should have a healthy smile, including kids!
