When should I take my child to the dentist?

Generally we recommend that you have your child’s oral development assessed six months after the eruption of the first tooth. Decay can occur once the first tooth has erupted, and is a particularly common concern for children.

What age should a child start brushing their teeth?

Your child needs to start brushing their teeth the moment they emerge. When it comes to teaching your child how to brush their teeth properly, the best way to look at it is: if your child can’t tie their shoelaces, then they probably can’t brush their teeth properly either. Take time to supervise them while they brush. It could help to brush your teeth at the same time and make a game out of timing them for two minutes every time. The best oral habits are learnt at a young age so it really is essential to support them though this time.

Traditional or electric toothbrushes for children – which type is better?

Often the type of toothbrush is irrelevant, the most important factor is the way they brush and how long your child brushes for. To find out the best way to brush their teeth, contact our friendly team for a children’s dentistry consultation.
