Keeping children’s teeth clean and healthy can be challenging!
And it can also be challenging to find a dentist your children like, as understandably they can be apprehensive and they may find the whole experience daunting. Don’t worry, our friendly team here at Shelley Manor Dental understand this, and we do our best to take the stress out of it. We try to ensure that your child’s visit to the dentist is a positive, enjoyable and educational.
Why it’s important for your children to visit the dentist regularly
- It gets your children into a routine of caring for their teeth from an early age
- It makes dental visits a normal part of life from a young age, reducing the likelihood of dental anxiety later in life
- Regular dental checkups help prevent the early onset of tooth decay, causing much greater problems further down the line
- Seeing a dentist at a young age can prevent dental fluorosis, a common condition caused by over exposure to fluoride in young children (for example, when children swallow toothpaste). Permanent tooth staining is the main consequence.
