Start Your Children on the Early Path to Great Oral Health in the Heart of London

When it comes to oral hygiene, it’s never too early to start taking care of your teeth and gums. Children who practise good oral hygiene from an early age are less likely to develop tooth decay. Cavities can be painful and they may also cause the milk teeth to fall out prematurely, which causes problems later in life.

Ideally, parents should take steps to protect their child’s teeth and gums from a very early age, as soon as the first teeth start to push through. Using a very soft brush to clean the teeth will help to prevent bacteria from gathering in the mouth without hurting the gums.

As soon as children are old enough to clean their teeth independently, they should be supervised and taught how to brush properly. Studies have shown that children with poor oral health are more likely to experience difficulty at school, often because they cannot concentrate because they are in pain and there is also a worry that children with decay and tooth pain will miss valuable classroom hours.

We recommend 6 monthly check-ups for children and the sooner they start, the better, as regular appointments enable them to get used to their dentist and also the unfamiliar sights and sounds of the dental surgery. We know that the clinic can be scary place for little people, but we do all we can to make it fun and completely stress-free and painless.

If you need any help or advice about teeth cleaning, choosing products for your child or getting your child to brush without having a battle every morning, our friendly dentists will be happy to help!
