At 32Whites we are committed to delivering the same level of excellent care to each of our patients, whether you are a child or an adult. Our team of dental experts work closely together in order to deliver the best family and children’s dentistry care, and make sure our clients feel comfortable during each and every visit.
When should I bring my child for their first check-up?
We always encourage you to bring your children to your dental appointments from a young age. This way they are familiar with our team and their surroundings by the time they are due their first dental appointment. We usually suggest having your child’s first check-up around the age of 2 but we are happy to give advice from any age.
How often should we come in for check-ups?
How often you visit our team will generally depend on your lifestyle and the condition of your teeth. However, we would advise that you try and make all of your family’s appointments on the same date, so your little ones will feel more comfortable and at ease during their visit.
Children’s teeth are more vulnerable than adults and so you may find younger children require more appointments. Check-ups usually range from every 3 months to once a year, but we will be able to give you more information once we have assessed your teeth.
At 32Whites we provide a thorough dental health assessment.
What can I do to look after my family’s teeth?
You can ensure your children and the rest of your family have healthy smiles they are proud of by following these simple steps:
- Create a regular teeth cleaning routine for all the family.
- Brush your baby’s teeth with fluoride toothpaste as soon as they get their first milk tooth.
- Brush your child’s teeth for at least two minutes, twice a day; we suggest in the morning and at bedtime.
- Create a regular teeth cleaning routing for all the family, as you can then supervise your children.
- Cut down on foods with high sugar contents, including sweets, biscuits, fizzy drinks, dried fruits, fruit juices, and cereals.
- Visit the dentist for regular check-ups.
