Your child’s first visit to The Dental Centre usually involves a 15-30 minute examination of their teeth, gums, jaws and bite. Even though your child will lose their baby teeth naturally, it is essential that these teeth are cared for in the same way as permanent teeth to avoid dangerous infections or development of crowding and mal-alignment problems in the adult teeth. Monitoring the health of your children’s teeth is very important to prevent, detect and treat problems as they occur.
It is a great idea to schedule your own appointment at the same time as your child’s at first to give them confidence from seeing you have your teeth examined.
All the friendly Dental Centre team are happy to help you and your family put in place a good preventive program at home for your children.
