Children's Teeth

Many people ask what age to start bringing their children to the dentist.

Most babies start getting their first baby tooth at around 6 months old ( this can vary ) so 12 months old is a good age to come in so we can check the mouth is developing normally.

Early visits help a child to get use to the smells and surroundings of the dental surgery and build a relationship with the dental team. If treatment is needed at any stage, it is usually tolerated better in children who have been to a dentist before as they are use to us and the surroundings.

Up into the early teens, children's mouths go through a lot of changes so seeing the dentist regularly allows us to check for any problems and intervene at the correct time (e.g for braces).
