Children’s Dentist Melbourne
Dental appointments for children are important, not only to evaluate tooth and gum health but also to educate the young patient in how to prevent dental problems and maintain a healthy smile throughout the child’s life.
We will also speak with the parent or accompanying adult about how to care for the child’s teeth and also answer any questions they may have.
Brunswick Dental Group recommend that children start their dental visits when their first teeth come in, as it is important to educate the parent on how to take proper care of their child’s teeth. Moreover, the child will get accustomed to seeing the dentist and will view the dental office as a safe friendly environment.
During the check-up appointment we will evaluate:
- How many teeth are and should be present
- Loose teeth
- Gum health
- Bite and habit evaluation
- Tongue and speech
- Fluoride use
- Diet and health history
- Home care and prevention
