At The Gap Dental Practice, we’re a family-friendly dental care provider that offers a number of children’s dentistry services.
Although children do lose their baby teeth, these primary teeth are incredibly important in their development. For this reason, we recommend that you bring your child to us early in their development, so we can check on their teeth and provide you with any tips that you need to keep their smile happy and healthy.
Dental Check-ups for Children
We understand that children might be nervous when they first visit the dentist, which is why we take things slowly. From a young age, we recommend that you bring your child with you to your own appointment. This way, they can get used to visiting the practice. We can also show them some of the equipment that we use and allow them to sit in the chair. This will make them feel more comfortable when it’s their turn.
As their baby teeth start to come through and fit together, we recommend that you schedule an appointment. This way we can check on the standard of their oral health and hygiene before any problems occur. For their first check-up, your child can even sit on your lap. You’re also never under any pressure to leave the room.
These check-ups are also a great opportunity for you to ask any questions that you might have about your child’s development and their oral health; including how to take care of their teeth and properly clean them.
Other Children's Dentistry Services
As your child’s baby teeth are replaced by their adult teeth, they may come through crooked or misplaced. If this is the case, speak to your dentist about our orthodontics services, as braces are a possible solution to help with the problem.
If your child takes up sports, then we also offer mouthguards to help keep their teeth safe and secure. We can help to make sure that your child has the perfect smile through a range of services that can help them as they transition into adult life.
Why are a Baby Teeth Important?
A child’s baby teeth are incredibly important, which is why you must ensure that you help them clean their teeth properly.
A child’s baby teeth save room in the mouth to help their adult teeth come through. In addition, they also play an important role in helping your child form their words, as well as teaching them to bite and chew correctly.
On top of all this, your child’s baby teeth can also affect their confidence. A happy child is a smiling child, and you’ll want them to be happy and confident in their smile.
