Children Dentistry

Home > Our Services

At around 8 months of age, your child teeth will start to erupt. It is important that your child has a good diet and that sugar intake is controlled. From age 5 the adult teeth start to erupt into the mouth starting with the molar teeth. From this point it is even more important to ensure that your child has good oral health as there will be no second chances.

Good oral health can be achieved by controlling your childs sugar intake, using fluoride products and good toothpaste instruction.

Teething:

Teething refers to the symptoms which may be experienced by children when a tooth erupts. Teething can be uncomfortable for some children, they may be grumpy and have a high temperature. Soft teething rings can help as they encourage the gum to break open and let the teeth pass through. Teething gels are available which contain an aspirin product which helps dull the pain.

Decayed Teeth:

It is important that your childs teeth are kept in good a health and free from decay. The enamel on childrens teeth is thinner than that on the adult dentition and the inside may become exposed much more quickly. For this reason your child should visit the dentist every six months.

Loosing Baby Teeth:

From around the age of 6, baby teeth start to be replaced by the adult dentition. The child should be encouraged to wiggle the teeth as on some occasions the baby teeth may become stuck and cause the adult teeth to be pushed to one side.
