Children's dental health is important from the moment their first tooth appears. It is important to bring your child to the dentist early so their teeth and gums can be examined and so they get used to the sights and smells of a dental practice early on.

From brushing their first tooth to bringing them to the dentist for the first time, we are here for you and your child every step of the way.

Babies should be going to the dentist soon after their first tooth appears. A baby’s front four teeth normally come through at around 6 months. This may seem early, but as soon as a baby has teeth, they are also able to get cavities.

We at the Neem Tree aim to provide the best possible children’s dentistry services for you and your loved ones.

Children’s Dental Care at the Neem Tree

We are a family-run practice who take great care and attention to ensure all our patients are treated comfortably and painlessly. At the Neem Tree we advise parents to bring their children to the dentist regularly, as often as your dentist recommends.

Taking your infant to the dentist may be a daunting task but at Neem Tree we will make sure to make your child feel comfortable and at ease. We focus on helping your child get used to the dental practice environment and building their confidence in coming to the dentist. Having orthodontic examinations and screens are particularly important for children aged 11 years onward.

Learn more about dental care for children

How important is a child's dental health?

Having healthy teeth is important not only for your oral health, but for your general health as well. This is especially important for children’s dental health. Oral health is recognised as being an indicator of wider health and social care issues such as nutrition and obesity.

Poor oral health in children can lead to new oral issues as they get older.  Children’s dental health and good dental habits need to be instilled in them as early as possible. If this is done, they should feel that this is a very normal part of their life and the right dental habits are formed from the start.

It is essential that you protect your infant’s teeth and reduce their chances of getting tooth decay or cavities. Tooth decay is the most common reason for a child to go under general anaesthetic in hospital in the U.K. Toothache can affect the way children socialise, eat and sleep.

At what age should children begin their visits to the dentist?

By age 1, children should have at least been to the dentist, even if just by accompanying their parents. This starts to make them more familiar and comfortable with the environment as they then become more regular visitors there. Bringing your children to the dentist from an early age can reduce their chances of having tooth decay and other gum diseases.

Should children be brushing teeth once or twice a day?

They should definitely be brushing twice a day, with night time being the more important using a small soft brush. Apply a small amount of toothpaste and brush the inside, outside and biting surfaces.

Is it harmful for children to have between-meal snacks?

Yes, as they then get an acid surge much more frequently, which causes increased build-up of plaque on the teeth. Keep sugary snacks to meal times and make sure your child brushes and flosses’ regularly, especially after meals.
