By putting in place good oral hygiene routines at a young age, you can help to future proof your children’s oral health.
At Benfleet Dental Centre, we advise that parents bring their children for their first dental appointment as soon as their first tooth appears. This ensures that children get used to the sights and sounds of the dental surgery from an early age, reducing the risk of dental anxiety in later life.
We follow the same preventative approach with children as we do with our adult patients. To help ensure that your children have strong and healthy teeth that last a lifetime, we use fluoride treatments and fissure sealants.
We also offer dietary advice on the effects that sugary snacks and drinks can have on children’s teeth and give instruction on how best to brush and clean their teeth.
