Giving your child the best chance of a super smile
The British Dental Health Foundation recommends that by the age of two-and-a-half children should be having regular dental check-ups. This way any oral health problems can be spotted and treated early and children can get into the habit of seeing a dentist.
Our team at Brixworth Dental Practice want to help you ensure your children get the best dental care. This is why all children who have a parent registered with Brixworth Dental Practice will get free routine private care. They will enjoy all the benefits of being seen privately, but there will be no charge for this service.
In addition we have a resident expert in children’s orthodontics who can advise you on the right treatment for your child.
We also strive to ensure that any child’s visits to us is positive, fun and not something to be anxious or worried about. To help with this we run a children’s club and can provide brushing charts to help reward children who work hard keeping their teeth clean.
Our top tips for healthier children’s teeth include:
– Making sure they brush their teeth for two minutes twice a day – and supervising them while
they are doing it.
– Encouraging them not to rinse after spitting, so the fluoride will remain in the mouth for longer
giving them the best protection against decay.
– Keeping sweets and sugary snacks and drinks for mealtimes only – it is not the amount of sweets
consumed that causes problems for teeth, it is how often they are eaten.
