Babies have to brush their teeth as soon as the first tooth appears in the mouth at the age of six months old. There are special finger- tooth- brushes that young mums can use to brush their babies teeth. The first visit to the dentist usually takes place at the age of 3-3.5 where the baby teeth are all been erupted. At the first visit we show the young patients all the equipment of the dental clinic so they feel more comfortable with the environment, polish the baby’s teeth, show the proper brushing technique, advice them on their nutrition habits and offer a small reward so the next visit will be more pleasant.
A six-month checkup and fluoration is recommended to detect any decay at its very early stages. At the age of six where the first permanent molars erupt in the mouth we recommend the sealants of grooves and fissures to protect the occlusal surfaces of these teeth which are usually the first to need fillings.
We also offer consultation on orthodontic treatment. If your baby needs one and when is the right time to start.
