– Particularly we find that some children, their first visit is because of pain and that’s not what we want to do at all because then they’re quite anxious and then treatment is quite hard and we don’t want to do the difficult treatments on them. So why do my child’s teeth need to be checked? Well, there are a number of reasons why your child’s teeth should be checked.
The reasons are because problems can develop quite rapidly in children. They have smaller teeth than adults and so decay can progress further and more and a faster rate and so if we catch them early, we can prevent them from turning into bigger problems that may cause your child some soreness or pain. So we really would like to prevent that for them. We wouldn’t want your little ones to experience that.
Particularly we find that some children, their first visit is because of pain and that’s not what we want to do at all because then they’re quite anxious and then treatment is quite hard and we don’t want to do the difficult treatments on them. So if we can prevent that early on, like by doing just sort of regular checks getting them used to the dentist, that would really benefit them in the long run. Another reason why we’ll check your child’s teeth is just to build up comfort. A lot of people are scared of coming to the dentist and really nervous. It’s one of their most hated things.
So by starting early and getting them used it from young, we can really build up some positive relationships to make it really fun for them rather than having them the fear of coming to the dentist. The other thing is that starting young at the dentist, we can help them build up some really good habits and that will help them prevent any further issues down the road as well, so make sure you have your chat with dentist about any issues or concerns that you may have about your child’s teeth. If you don’t have a dentist, we are more than happy to help you with that.
