Dental Treatment For Baby Teeth
Preventing tooth decay and cavities in children is really important. At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre in Sutton we educate children and parents on the importance of early regular attendance of children with their dentist.
Early detection and treatment of dental decay is vital for the healthy development of children’s permanent teeth. Early treatment of tooth decay in children results in less anxiety as children spend a shorter time in the dental chair. Early treatment of dental disease also decreases the number of dental extractions that children require.
Regular 6 monthly attendance for children in Smile Hub Dental Clinic is recommended so that we can monitor your child’s dental development. This permits us to make recommendations as early intervention can prevent future loss of teeth and also reduce the time spend in orthodontics in later years.
Early and regular attendance at the dentist by children is important to maintain their attractive white smiles which increase their confidence. Regular visits will increase your child’s motivation and reduce the risk of toothaches by preventing fillings and extractions. At Smile Hub our highly trained dentists will recommend a suitable diet for your child which will enhance motivation. Through regular attendance your dentist can help preserve your child’s primary teeth and prevent future orthodontic problems. Research has shown that if your child has good baby teeth their adult teeth are less likely to have decay.
At Smile Hub Dental Clinic, we educate parents and children on good oral hygiene to prevent toothaches. Tooth decay can cause your child pain if it develops and can interfere with sleep, eating and schooling. It is not ideal to need an extraction of a primary tooth as this can cause your child anxiety and develop a phobia which can extend into adulthood. Regular attendance from a young age helps to prevent dental anxiety and each visit is friendly and focused on prevention. In the long-term a health mouth enhances your child’s wellbeing and will save you time and money.
Early childhood visits to the dentist every 6 months is recommended from when children get their first tooth.
