Ensuring children take good care of their teeth from a young age is paramount to them developing a healthy oral health and hygiene routine when they grow older.

Here at Westbridge Dental Practice, we’re passionate about positive reinforcement and inspiring children to learn about their smile and how to care for it. We encourage parents to bring their child in for regular check-ups 6 months after the first tooth erupts.

What should I expect when I bring my child in for a routine appointment?

Your child’s early dental appointments will mainly be about them getting used to the dental practice environment and promoting good practices. Our compassionate and friendly team very much enjoy teaching children about how they can cultivate a good oral health and hygiene routine at home and take responsibility for their smiles. It’s all about preventative care and making learning fun.

Why is bringing your child in for routine appointment so important?

According to NHS statistics, the main reason that children under 5 are admitted to hospital is because of tooth decay. Bringing your child along to bi-annual dental appointments ensures any issues are spotted and treated early, avoiding the need for complex intervention or indeed, hospitalisation.

We can also spot any structural issues such as underbites, crossbites and overbites developing. Treating these early can make a huge difference to the degree of orthodontic intervention required down the line. Research has shown that bringing children to the dentist from a young age makes it less likely that they will develop a fear of the dentist, something 12% of the adult population currently have in the U.K.
