Dental care for children

About Dental care for children

Dental Care for children holds a strong focus on preventative care, as children’s teeth are still in their formative years. Having regular trips to the dental practice can get the child used to the dental environment and make them more receptive to treatment options.

When should I take my child to the dentist for their first check-up?

Once the child has had their first tooth appear, or no later than their first birthday, they must visit the dentist for their first check-up.

What should I use to clean my baby’s teeth?

To clean a baby’s teeth, you should use a soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head that has been specially designed for infants. The toothbrush should be used with water, and at least once a day, preferably before the child’s bedtime.

Does my child need a mouthguard for sports?

A mouthguard may be considered necessary only for children who participate in contact sports like karate, rugby and football. Nonetheless, children who play sports such as cricket may also benefit from wearing a protective mouthguard. You may ask your dentist about a customized mouthguard for your child.

Should my child get sealants?

A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating applied on the back teeth and other chewing surfaces to prevent tooth decay from setting in. It bonds with the uneven grooves of the teeth and creates a protective shield. If necessary, children can get dental sealants on their permanent molars and premolars once those sets of teeth have grown in.

Excellent, Ashmi and Sophie were so good. I am quite a nervous patient, but was continuously at ease by Ashmi running through the procedure before, during and after. Thank you.
