At Primadent, we also cater to children and their oral health needs.

Our focus for children is on preventative care such as hygiene, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants as well as oral development and orthodontics, and patient and parent education.

We feel it is important to have an open conversation with children, listen to their concerns, and actively include them in the decision-making process, when possible so they can become more responsible for their oral health.

What can I do as a parent to protect my child’s teeth?

As a parent, there are certain steps you can take to protect the oral health of your child at home in-between dental check-ups.

  • Brush their teeth at least twice a day (before breakfast and right before going to bed) for 2 minutes.
  • Brush your child’s teeth up to the age of 7 and continue to supervise them until the age of 10.
  • Avoid providing snacks and drinks high in sugar – instead, encourage them to choose healthy, tooth friendly options like crunchy fruits and vegetables.

What are the most common dental issues among children?

  • Tooth decay and cavities
  • Thumb or finger sucking leading to misaligned teeth
  • Inherited misalignment
  • Cavities

A dentist’s diagnosis and early interaction are vital to take care of these issues.

When should my child start using toothpaste?

Clean your baby’s teeth twice a day using a small, soft toothbrush with a very small sized portion of fluoride toothpaste. As more milk teeth erupt, so should the amount of toothpaste. As your child matures to ages 2 to 6, the toothpaste used should be the standard pea-sized amount.

When should I bring my child to the dentist for the first time?

Children should start visiting a dentist once their first milk teeth are visible. Tooth development begins in the womb, but in most cases, the very first milk teeth do not erupt until around 6-12 months, according to the National Health Service.

The National Health Service also recommends bringing your child to their first dental appointment shortly after their first, or first few teeth have erupted. After the first visit, bring your child to the dentist every 6 months for healthy mouth reviews.

Introducing your child to their dentist early can help decrease future anxiety levels surrounding dental treatments. Regular visits and cleanings also prevent the development of the most common dental issues among children.

If your baby is approaching the one-year mark or already has some milk teeth, contact Primadent on 01512 282 226 to discuss our dental care treatments for children.
