It is important that you bring your child to the dentist before they are 2 years of age. This allows advice about tooth brushing, tooth paste and their diet. It also allows assessment of children with early dental decay and helps the dentist look at the developing dentition. It is important to maintain the health of “baby teeth” as early decay can lead to problems with the developing permanent teeth.
If everything is healthy an annual visit with the dentist will be sufficient until 5 or 6 years of age.
