Optimal dental health is important for a child’s development.
Your Doncaster East dentist takes pride in building and maintaining bright and healthy smiles for our young patients, in a light-hearted and fun environment.
Here are a few of the reasons you should entrust your children to your Doncaster East dentist.
Your Doncaster East dentist provides effective and personalised dental treatments that suit the preferences and dental needs of the children.
Parents are encouraged to accompany their children during their check-up to learn about their child’s dental state and to support them for the duration of their check-up.
Children’s Dental Care
One of our main goals is, by teaching topics like brushing, using fluoride mouthwashes, flossing, and proper dental hygiene, to help your children achieve and maintain optimal dental health.
Brush your child’s teeth daily as soon as his/her first tooth emerges. It is advised to use a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush your child’s teeth.
Use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste when the child is old enough to not swallow it. Children are advised to brush their teeth two times a day.
We recommend parents supervise their children to guide them and make sure they’re brushing properly.
With proper brushing, the plaque build-up from the inner, outer, and chewing surfaces of the teeth will be removed.
How to brush properly:
- Hold the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle.
- Place the toothbrush along the gum line.
- Gently brush the outer and inner surfaces of the upper and lower teeth in a circular motion.
- Brush the tongue as well.
Flossing the teeth is as important as brushing them because it can remove plaque stuck between the teeth, where the bristles of a toothbrush can’t reach. As soon as a child grows two teeth, they need to start flossing them. A parent should floss the child’s teeth until he or she can do it alone and guide him/her when he’s/she’s already old enough to do so.
Parents are encouraged to monitor their children’s diet. To prevent food debris from sticking to teeth, children should eat sweets in moderation and brush their teeth more that 30 minutes after eating.
Regular Dental Check-ups
Regularly visiting the dentist is important to keep children’s teeth free from decay. It helps determine if children require dental treatment later in life.
