Tooth decay in children is common, but in many cases avoidable. The condition of baby teeth is often reflected later on the adult teeth.

 

Baby teeth, which usually have surfaced by about two and half years, are crucial even though they will eventually fall out. Baby teeth hold spaces open for the developing adult teeth and assist in the development of speech as well as appearance, eating and smiling.

Regular dental visits help children remain decay free. It allows us to educate children and parents in properly caring for their teeth for life and early diagnosis of dental problems. Teeth cleaning removes plaque and tartar, which causes decay and gingivitis and the application of fluoride treatments strengthen the enamel.

At the Geelong Dental Centre, we endeavour to make your child’s dental experience positive and fun, so they are enthusiastic about coming to the dentist and encourage them to maintain their oral health for life.

Tips for preventing tooth decay in children:

·       Brush teeth twice a day

·       Spit don’t rinse toothpaste

·       Use age specific toothpaste from 2 years of age – under parental supervision

·       Drink tap water as it contains fluoride

·       Limit consumption of sweet drinks including juice, cordial, soft drinks, sports drinks etc.

·       Limit frequent snacking

·       Be a good role model for your children
