We recommend that you begin taking your child to the dentist no later than six months after the eruption of their first tooth. Early dental appointments promote optimal oral hygiene in youngsters and eliminate any associated anxiety.
Diet and poor oral hygiene are the two primary causes of tooth decay. Child-friendly guidance and guidelines are available for both of these. In Ireland, one in four children are diagnosed with dental decay before they begin school, and they lack the manual dexterity to correctly brush their teeth until roughly the age of six, so regular check-ups are essential to monitor their teeth and remind them of the best procedures.
At Smile Hub Dental Clinic, we provide specialised therapies, such as inhalation sedation and interceptive orthodontics, for children. For additional information on how interceptive orthodontics can be used to reduce or eliminate the need for orthodontic treatment in adolescents and young adults, please visit the following website.
