By the age of three most children will have all of their first primary teeth. The care and health of these teeth will also impact on the health of their permanent teeth. Your child’s permanent teeth need to last a life time. Early intervention through regular dental visits will detect any problems, and allow your child’s permanent teeth to come through straight and well-spaced. The team at Gateway Dental Care will monitor your child’s oral development ensuring teeth align and function correctly for total health and appearance.
Good oral hygiene combined with Children’s Dentistry plays a very important part in the overall health of your child. Early Childhood Caries (ECC) is a disease which afflicts many children. These include baby bottle tooth decay, nursing caries, rampant caries, and sipper cup caries.
From around 2 years of age we recommend that you bring your child in for a visit. They will get to have a ride in the dental chair and find out more about their teeth. Our team will make your child feel right at home and help them to understand the importance of caring for their teeth. Your child’s early dental experiences form their life approach to dental hygiene and care. By having routine check-ups at Waves Dental from an early age, it can help to eliminate the fear of the Dentist and establish a good dental routine they can follow throughout their lives.
