The Importance of Early Dental Visits

Adhering to the recommendation that children have their first dental check-up by age one, or shortly after their first tooth appears, plays a crucial role in their oral health. These early visits allow us to monitor the growth and development of your child’s teeth and jaws, identify any potential issues early on, and provide guidance on proper oral hygiene practices for children.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your child should have their first dental check-up by the age of one or shortly after their first tooth emerges. Early visits help monitor their oral development and establish good oral hygiene habits.

Dental anxiety is common among children. You can help your child overcome it by talking positively about dental visits, choosing a paediatric dentist experienced in handling anxious children, and using relaxation techniques such as deep breathing. Additionally, bringing their favourite toy or comfort item to the appointment can provide comfort and distraction. The friendly environment at Village Dental Care is designed to make your child’s visit as pleasant as possible.

You can prepare your child by using positive language when discussing the dentist, reading books about dental visits, and explaining that the dentist helps keep their teeth healthy and strong.

A paediatric dental check-up includes a thorough examination of your child’s teeth, gums, and oral development. Preventive treatments like fluoride application and sealants may be offered, and oral hygiene guidance will be provided.

Our team at Village Dental Care is experienced in helping children feel comfortable during dental visits. We use child-friendly language, gentle techniques, and a welcoming environment to ease any anxiety.

To maintain your child’s oral health, ensure they brush their teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and maintain a balanced diet with limited sugary snacks and drinks. Regular dental check-ups are essential for ongoing care.
