Dentistry for Children

About Children’s Dentistry

If you want to set your children up for a lifetime of healthy teeth and a bright smile, now is the time to start. By the age of six months, babies already start getting their first teeth. These teeth, which continue erupting throughout childhood, are at a higher risk of damage due to thinner enamel.

Baby teeth are just as important as permanent teeth. Healthy baby teeth are crucial for holding space for adult teeth, chewing, speaking, and more. Establishing good oral health habits as early as possible is a key way to help your child enjoy a smile they can feel great about.

Regular dental appointments for your child provide many important benefits, including:

  • Ensure children learn healthy brushing and flossing habits
  • Monitor their teeth and jaw development
  • Monitor their bite alignment
  • Screen for underlying issues
  • Develop a positive relationship with dental care
  • Detect issues as early as possible
  • Make sure their adult teeth are erupting properly

Dentist Recommendations

Baby teeth are especially susceptible to decay, making it important for children to learn proper oral hygiene and to see a dentist regularly for general checkups. We recommend scheduling your child’s first dental visit at the time their first tooth erupts, or by their first birthday.

At appointments, we always prioritise patient education. We teach how to brush and floss properly, give tips on making brushing more fun, and help children understand why some foods are good or bad for their teeth.

We are experts in all stages of tooth development, from the very first baby tooth all the way through the teenage years and beyond. Whether you want to schedule your child’s first checkup or are concerned your teenager may need braces, our team has the expertise, caring demeanor, and state-of-the-art dentistry equipment to deliver the best dental experience possible.
