Frequently Asked Questions:
- At what age should my child start visiting the dentist?
When your child have their first set of teeth (usually 3 years of age) your child can visit the dentist to start with an easy and enjoyable visit to familiarise being at the dentist. Usually the visit involves a ride in the chair and a “show and tell” style to get your child comfortable going to the dentist. Usually no treatment is undertaken on their first visit
- When should my child start brushing their teeth?
Parents should brush their child’s teeth as soon as they are present with soft bristles and small head, brushing at least once a day, at bedtime will help reduce the risk of decay
- When should my child start using toothpaste?
Until the age of 3, your child should not use a fluoridated toothpaste due to risk of swallow. Earlier than that clean your child’s teeth with water and a soft toothbrush.
