Here at Gaskell Avenue Dental Practice in Knutsford we know that the secret to a lifetime of great oral health is encouraging excellent habits during our patients’ youngest years.
At Gaskell Avenue Dental, we advocate patient education because we believe that knowledge is power. This is why we always explain everything that we do during our appointments and provide our younger patients and their parents with useful tips, tricks, and techniques that they can implement at home to ensure optimum oral health care.
Even though the milk teeth will fall out adult teeth can come through as young as 4 years old so it is important to look after all teeth as soon as they appear. Instilling excellent tooth care from the outset can help to ensure a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles.
Our top tips for children’s teeth
- Bring children to the practice from a young age so that they can get used to the sights, sounds, and smells of a dental practice. This will help to prevent any fear or anxiety about dental appointments in the future.
- Brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to ensure that the tooth enamel can benefit from the strengthening properties fluoride can provide.
- Beware of the sugar and acid content of food and drinks especially those consumed between meals and before bedtime
