First trip to the dentist


First trip to the dentist

When should I take my child to the dentist?

It is recommended that children should go to the dentist with their parents as soon as possible. You should then take them regularly, as often as your dentist recommends. This will let them get used to the noises, smells and surroundings and prepare them for future visits. The earlier these visits begin, the more relaxed the children will be.

First trip to the dentist

Bringing your child for their first trip to the dentist by their first birthday is a good rule of thumb to help introduce good oral health and hygiene habits. In some circumstances, early diagnosis may be made of oral disease, developmental tooth defects or perhaps missing or unusual shaped teeth. All children should attend their dentist four times per year for regular check-ups; this way if anything does develop it is caught early so is easier to manage.

Good habits last a lifetime

Looking after your children’s teeth is vital to ensure they develop a healthy dental regime that will last them into adulthood.
