Dental Care for Children

At Etwall Dental Practice we believe preventative dentistry begins with the eruption of your very first tooth. We strive to provide families with a relaxing, stress-free environment that helps children become accustomed to and comfortable in a dental practice.

It is vital that a professional regularly monitor your child’s mouth and dental development as they grow. We want to find and address any problems early before they become serious.

We also want to instil good dental hygiene habits and practices early to help provide a lifetime of good oral health for your child.

Can babies benefit from seeing a dentist?

Yes, you should bring your child to the dentist for the first time within 6 months of their first tooth erupting.

What will happen at my child’s first dental visits?

Early dental appointments are as much about familiarising your child with the practice surroundings and all its sights, sounds, and smells, as about allowing them to get to know the dentist.

We will also teach you how to keep your child’s teeth and gums clean and healthy until they are old enough to start caring for their own oral health.

What can I do to maintain my child’s oral health?

There are several ways you can enhance and maintain the condition of your child’s teeth and gums. These include:

  • Brushing twice a day with a toothbrush and toothpaste designed for children
  • Making sure they spit the toothpaste out to avoid fluoride ingestion
  • Limiting their sugar intake and encouraging a healthy, balanced diet
