Starting Them Young
Proper dental care is a part of life, so it’s important to instill good habits early on to make your kids understand that regular dental check-ups and proper dental care are important. Young children can be especially susceptible to oral health problems, as their baby teeth are not built to withstand as much bacteria as adult teeth can. If your child is in the teething stage, you may use this appointment to discuss ways you can help the teething pain, such as ointments and gels. Or if your child is a bit older, you might ask your pediatric dentist about solutions for thumb sucking or teeth grinding in sleep.
At Gympie Road Dental, our children’s dental centre team make this easier for you by making dental care more fun and relaxing for your kids. Our friendly staff and kid’s dentist will eliminate any fears that your kids may have about dentistry, making them feel safe and comfortable whenever they come in for a session.
Our experienced dentist north Brisbane will help make your children feel at-home in our clinic, instilling a sense of fun and positivity to help them build good dental habits. We’ll also use age-appropriate tools to make their experience even better, such as toys, simple reading materials and kid-friendly dental instruments.
We always advise parents to introduce their children to professional dental care early on, and we highly recommend taking your child in as soon as they get their first tooth. You can bring them in with you on your next check-up to introduce them to our children’s dental clinic team even before they start their regular check-ups and treatments. This way, your child can get comfortable being in the dental environment and form a positive relationship with your dentist.
By instilling good dental care practices and proper dental hygiene at an early age, they’re more likely to develop good dental habits and carry these into adolescence and adulthood. Which means less problems and costly treatments required down the track.
