Having healthy teeth is important not only for your oral health, but for your general health as well. This is especially important for children. 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.  From brushing their first tooth to deciding when to bring them to the dentist for the first time, a child’s dental health and good dental habits need to be planned from the very beginning; therefore, they should feel that this is a very normal part of their life and the right dental habits are formed from the start.

It’s essential that you protect your infant’s teeth and reduce their chances of getting teeth 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.

Babies should be going to the dentist after their first tooth appears. A baby’s front four teeth normally come through at around 6 months.
Though this may seem early, as soon as a baby has teeth they can still get cavities. Neem tree aims to provide the best service for your children.

Ensuring that your children’s teeth are healthy:

You can help keep your children’s teeth healthy by limiting how often they have sugary foods and drink. A balanced diet is imperative to prevent tooth decay. Your child’s diet should be full of calcium, phosphorous and fluoride.

At Neem Tree we advise parents to bring their children to the dentist regularly, as often as your dentist recommends. Some simple things you can do include brushing your children’s teeth last thing at night and at least one other time during the day with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing daily to remove any plaque from between the teeth and under the gum line.

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 getting the child used to the dental environment and building their confidence in coming to the dentist. Having Orthodontic examinations and screens are particularly important for children aged 11 years onwards.
