We like to see children for their very first dental check-up soon after their first tooth has erupted, or by age one. These first dental visits are simply a chance for us to check their teeth and jaws are developing correctly and we can offer advice for parents on how to effectively brush and floss a very young child’s mouth.
As they grow older, we will need to see them at regular intervals, usually every six months in order to detect any small problems before they can develop into more serious issues. We do take digital x-rays periodically and the interval will depend on your child’s risk of tooth decay. If they do not have any fillings then we will need to take x-rays less frequently than for a child who already has one or more fillings. As your child grows up, we are here to offer advice on oral care for you both and we can work with older children and can teach them the best way to look after their teeth.
You can make an appointment online or over the phone on (02) 6291 5533. Our practice is located at 2/26 Benham St, Chisholm ACT 2905.
