At Stoke Lane Dentistry we are passionate about looking after the oral health of children. Establishing a good dental hygiene routine is essential for the development of young teeth. We advise parents and guardians to introduce children to the dentist at an early age and to bring them to the practice for regular check-ups as they grow.
Why choose Children’s Dentistry at Stoke Lane?
It is very common for children to be apprehensive about going to the dentist. Good early experiences encourage a positive mindset and familiarising them with the sights and sounds of a dental practice from an early age can reduce trepidation later on.
Our friendly team of dentists encourage children to develop good oral hygiene habits and show them how to brush their teeth properly. Regular check-ups allow us to follow the progress of their teeth as they grow and to take prompt action before potential problems develop.
Children’s teeth should be brushed two times a day, with the second time just prior to going to bed. Brushing should be done using a fluoride toothpaste and should take approximately two minutes. Adults should supervise brushing until the age of seven, after which children should be able to brush on their own.
When the milk teeth first come through, only a smear of toothpaste is needed. This can go up to a pea-sized amount at the age of three. The amount of fluoride in toothpaste used by children should be between 1,000 and 1,500 ppm.
It is recommended to register children with a dentist between birth and their first teeth coming through. Milk teeth typically appear at around six months.
