Decay, particularly in baby teeth, is a fast-moving disease. Where it is not prevented, it must be treated with dental fillings. When performing this common procedure on children, we take special care to be gentle and relaxing.
Dental health education
We prioritise dental health education for all our patients, but for children, it is particularly important. We can show your child the correct brushing and flossing techniques in order to set up a comprehensive dental health routine for life. We believe in preventive dental care, and therefore recommend regular visits.
Fissure sealants are a preventive measure used to protect children’s first adult molars from decay. Completely safe and painless, a fissure sealant is painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth, effectively stopping any bacteria and food from becoming caught in the tiny grooves in the teeth. Unfortunately, no matter how well your child may clean their teeth, this is a common location for decay to take hold. Fissure sealants can stop this from occurring, helping to ensure your child retains these important teeth for life. They are also tooth coloured and blend seamlessly with the natural tooth material.
Your child’s oral health pre-teeth
Prior to the eruption of your child’s baby teeth, you can start to get them used to the idea of teeth cleaning by wiping their gums down twice a day with a soft cloth.
Brushing baby teeth
Once your child’s teeth begin to erupt, switch to cleaning with a soft toothbrush without toothpaste while they lay in your lap, or on the bed; toothpaste should not be used until your child is 18 months old. Even when there is only a few teeth, it is possible for decay to occur. By setting good brushing habits early, you set your child up for good oral health for life. Flossing should also begin now; ask us to show you the right technique!
The importance of baby teeth
Baby teeth are critical to effective speech and jaw development, and the development of healthy, strong adult teeth. If a baby tooth suffers decay, and it’s left untreated, the decay can travel beneath the gums and affect the adult teeth. In severe cases, this can impact the growth of the child’s adult teeth.
