Frequently Asked Questions
Your child will start to cut their first teeth at around 6 months. It is recommended that children visit the dentist by the age of 1 or within 6 months of getting their first tooth. If you suspect something might be wrong or your child might be experiencing discomfort or pain, please book an appointment as soon as possible. It’s never too late for a child to have their first dental appointment.
Primary teeth, also known as baby teeth, are just as important as adult teeth. They play a crucial role in a child’s development, including their facial structure, smile, and self-confidence. Maintaining the health of primary teeth can help children develop healthy eating habits and good oral hygiene practices. Neglecting primary teeth can lead to pain and discomfort, which can affect a child’s ability to chew and their food choices. It’s essential to take care of primary teeth to ensure that children’s overall dental health is maintained.
The duration of the appointment will vary depending on your child’s needs and cooperation during the exam. Generally, the appointment will take around one hour.
It is recommended that your child have dental check-ups and cleanings as often as you do, which is usually every 6 months. However, if you notice any signs of tooth or jaw pain, such as frequent jaw rubbing or avoiding certain foods, please schedule an appointment as soon as possible
Cavities, or holes in the teeth, occur due to bacterial and dental plaque buildup, which can be worsened by consuming sugary or acidic foods and beverages. Everyone has different susceptibility to cavities, and it is essential to address them before they grow larger and lead to infection, even in primary teeth. It may or may not cause pain or sensitivity
Gums are an integral part of the oral system, which includes teeth, tongue, cheeks, glands, ligaments, joints, bones, and more. Therefore, when one part of the oral system is affected, it can have a domino effect on overall oral health. Swollen, itchy, sore, or bleeding gums can be an early warning sign of a more severe issue. Keeping good oral hygiene is essential to maintain the health of your gums.
