A child’s baby, or primary, teeth are of huge importance. As well as helping to pave the way for secondary teeth, they enhance both the speaking ability and chewing function. As a parent you are the ultimate role model for your children’s dental, dietary, and oral hygiene habits. Setting a good example right from the start can help to create a healthy routine for their future. Supervising your children while they brush their teeth is a beneficial dental technique to establish good oral hygiene. You can help your children to reach all the ‘tricky’ spots and show encouragement during this vital process.
The Importance of Children’s Dentistry
Our dentists encourage working with your kids to establish healthy eating habits from an early age. A balanced diet and the consumption of foods from all sections of the healthy food pyramid can prevent decay as well as help to strengthen and protect teeth. Please, however, don’t wait until your children experience a toothache to visit us. A child’s first dental check-up should begin just after the eruption of their first tooth. Paediatric dentistry helps kids to establish healthy dental habits. Visiting at an early age can also help to eliminate any fear of the dentist.
