Do you know your child’s dental health?
Children’s Dentistry Cabramatta
Do you know how well your child’s mouth is doing?
A baby’s first six months of life are when their baby teeth start to fall out. They begin to lose their primary teeth by age 6 or 7, and secondary, permanent teeth eventually replace these teeth.
Without proper dental care, children may develop oral diseases and decay that could be painful and complicated for the rest of their lives.
Today, early childhood dental caries, an infectious disease, affects kids more frequently than asthma and hay fever combined by a factor of 5 and 7.

Our Children’s Dentistry Services in Cabramatta
It is vital to take children to the dentist regularly to keep their teeth healthy. It aids in figuring out whether kids will need dental care in the future.
A dental cleaning helps to remove plaque buildup from your child’s mouth’s hard-to-reach areas and to find and treat tooth decay early on.
At least twice a year, kids should go to the dentist for teeth cleaning to prevent food residue and plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments can also benefit kids at higher risk of tooth decay, and sealants are generally advised to shield their teeth from harmful bacteria and plaque.
Your Cabramatta dentist may advise fluoride treatments for your child once they have teeth to help prevent cavities. Two to four times a year, this can be done. The number of procedures depends on how likely your child will develop a cavity.
Children who wear mouthguards are less likely to experience dental emergencies. Every time your child engages in recreational or sporting activities, they should wear them.
The mouthguard specially made for your mouth by your dentist is the best. Your Cabramatta dentist may also recommend a mouth guard for these teeth if your child has braces or any fixed dental appliance on the lower jaw.
Your child might benefit from fissure sealants, which are a preventative measure. Fissure sealants are placed on the surfaces of children’s permanent molars between the ages of six and twelve to stop tooth decay in the grooves of these back teeth.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When should kids get a check-up at the dentist?
Your child should visit a dentist as soon as their first tooth erupts or no later than the time of their first birthday to avoid dental issues.
Are my child's baby teeth that important?
For a variety of reasons, baby teeth are essential. They not only aid young children in speaking and chewing clearly during the early years of life, but they also aid in guiding the eruption of permanent teeth.
How frequently should my child visit a paediatric dentist?
Your child should schedule an appointment with the dentist every 6 months to avoid tooth decay and other dental issues. However, based on your child’s oral health, your paediatric dentist can advise you on the timing and frequency of visits.
