A professional paediatric dentist will offer expert tips on how to care for your child’s teeth at home. The advice usually includes information about the proper way to brush and floss teeth which is based on the condition of your child’s teeth specifically. Another topic that’s addressed is your children’s eating habits and what you should be doing to protect their teeth and gums. As a precaution, you should stay away from food rich in sugar and starch. In addition, a child should not sleep while nursing or with a bottle of juice or milk.

Children’s First Visit To Kids Dentist In Sydney

We believe that it is of vital importance that children have a friendly and relaxed introduction to dental treatment and feel comfortable from the very first visit. By providing a happy environment, our team hopes to eliminate any dental anxiety or fears children may have.

When should my children get their first teeth?

Ultimately, each child is different and has a unique physiology. Thus, the pace at which the first tooth grows will differ. However, generally speaking, baby teeth tend to come in between the range of four and 12 months of age.

When your child’s teeth do come through it is important that the child is not experiencing excessive discomfort or any obvious developmental problems with their teeth. If you have any concerns don’t hesitate to contact our team of dentist for kids in Sydney.

When should my child start losing baby teeth?

As a rule, your child’s teeth are supposed to start falling out around 5-6 years old. However, since each child is different, it could be earlier or later. Once again, if you have concerns please speak to our team and visit us for a consultation. The loss of your child’s baby teeth will be followed by the outburst of their first permanent molars, which are followed by the remainder of your child’s adult teeth.

As any compassionate and caring child dentist, we are happy to discuss this process at length.

Early Dental Care

Good oral health is a vital part of the overall health. As your child’s dentists, we will implement protective dental health habits that keep a child free from dental/oral disease, while maintaining strong healthy teeth and a beautiful, long-lasting smile. If you need a quality pediatric dentist in Sydney  who focuses on prevention, early detection, and treatment of dental diseases, Clear Dental team is what you need. For us, your children’s oral hygiene and teeth are always a priority.

Preventing Tooth Decay

Did you know the two most significant elements of tooth decay are bacteria and diet. If your child is not cleaning their teeth properly, bacteria will form on their teeth and gums, which can cause serious effects to  their health. Starchy, refined carbohydrates like bread, pasta, and biscuits can be as harmful to your child’s teeth as sugar. Starches from white flour can remain in your mouth and break down into simple sugars.

How are they dangerous to teeth? Bacteria break down the sugars and turn them into acid causing tooth decay. This is why it is important to brush teeth after each meal. Dental decay is a tooth infection, and preventative measures will help to avoid cavities and dental treatment.

Importance of Baby Teeth

It may seem like baby teeth are not that important in the grand scale of your life, however, they have 4 very important functions, and it is very important that they are kept in place until they are lost naturally.

Primary teeth:

  • Maintain good nutrition by allowing your child to chew properly
  • Involved in speech development
  • Help adult teeth grow properly by creating space for them
  • Provide healthy smile which helps children gain self-esteem amongst peers

Infants and Children

A vital step in developing healthy habits is teaching your child about the importance of regular dental care. Our team will share the latest available methods for keeping your child’s oral hygiene up to scratch to create a healthy mindset.  Your child’s first dental visit should occur soon after the first tooth shows up, and no later than the child’s first birthday. Starting your child’s teeth and mouth examinations early can uncover any issues that may impact speech and other oral issues.

Adolescents

Adolescents have special oral care requirements, and of course, self-image is very important to them. Tooth decay, plaque or poorly positioned teeth and jaws can have a lasting impact on their self-esteem. Teens also often eat unhealthy foods, and we can provide a sensitive, professional, and caring method of restoring and controlling teeth as well as to teach preventive dental health care in your child’s teenage years. We can also provide information on wisdom teeth, teeth straightening or correction techniques.

 

Tips ensuring better oral health of your children

  • Paediatric dental care safeguards your child’s teeth and keeps them free from decay and other dental diseases.
  • It is important to purchase toothbrushes and toothpastes manufactured specifically for your child’s age.
  • Brush teeth after every meal.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Don’t use mouthwash immediately after brushing teeth, as it can remove any protectants that are already in the toothpaste.
  • Brush your teeth for two minutes, twice per day minimum.
  • You should supervise or help your children brush their teeth until they are at least seven years old.
