Dental care should begin as soon as a child’s first tooth arrives. Supervised parental brushing is essential for your child’s dental health, in addition to control of sugary foods and drinks. At Ashley Dental Centre, we recommended that you bring your child for a dental visit from the age of six months. We encourage bringing the whole family, as this will make a young child feel included and more relaxed.
The first appointment should be a fun and happy visit. Routine dental check ups should be every six months. In addition to advice on fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash, our treatments for children include fluoride applications and fissure sealants where necessary.
