Plymouth dentists encouraging children to have great teeth for life!

Plymouth dentists encouraging children shows picture of a baby smiling with new teethBring in your children so that we can encourage and teach them to achieve their best dental care. All children deserve a great smile for life and we can help with that.

In support of current government initiatives such as Dental Check by 1 and Change4Life, we are registering children as new NHS patients. Parents or guardians just need to call the surgery to make an appointment for their child or children.

Our Children’s Days are a great time to come into the practice for an appointment, especially if you’re worried your child may be a bit intimidated. We think we’re always welcoming. On children’s days, however, we aim to be particularly child-friendly and relaxed.

We’re making a visit to the dentist fun  😉

And Plymouth parents encouraging children to have great teeth for life!

The British Society of Paediatric Dentistry has a leaflet packed with child dental care advice.

Here is the BSPD summary of key points:

  • Take your baby to a dentist as soon as they get their first teeth and certainly before their first birthday.
  • Once your baby is old enough to drink anything other than milk, the best drink is water.
  • After the age of one, introduce a golden hour before bed when your child has nothing to eat or drink with the exception of water. Their teeth should be brushed just before they go to bed so the last thing in the mouth is fluoride toothpaste.
  • Wherever possible, ask for sugar-free medication for your child.
  • Encourage your child to brush their teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Your child should see a dentist regularly. Until their 18th birthday, the time between appointments should never be more than 12 months.
  • It’s likely that most of your child’s dental care can be provided in a general dental practice. However, if you have concerns you should ask your dentist for a referral to a Specialist in Paediatric Dentistry. A second opinion can sometimes be a good idea if you are worried about your child’s teeth.
