Good oral hygiene habits should be formed at an early age. That’s why it’s essential for children to visit the dentist on or before their first birthday when their first tooth erupts. This helps your child get into the regular habit of attending bi-annual dental assessments, familiarises them with dental care techniques and makes it more likely that they’ll look after their teeth well into adulthood.
At Pascoe Vale Dental Group, we aim to provide a pleasant experience for both you and your child so they are happy to come to the dentist on a regular basis. We will monitor teeth progress, educate them on how to prevent decay, and assess jaw and bite function as your child grows. This is especially important as the early detection and management of tooth alignment can avoid difficulties once secondary teeth erupt.
Putting your child at ease
For the apprehensive child, our trained dentists excel at managing fears and putting children at ease while receiving dental care. In limited cases, we may recommend an anaesthetic for your child. This ensures our dentists can work longer and complete more treatment on your child in fewer visits.
Contact us today to schedule a dental assessment for you or your child. Our dental team will cater to your child’s dental needs with first-class care. We will also equip you with the necessary skills to teach your child how to effectively clean and care for their teeth at home.
