Paediatric dentistry, or children’s dentistry, is the services and treatments given to those under the age of 18 for their oral health needs.
Setting up children with healthy oral hygiene habits and ensuring they go to regular dental check-ups throughout their childhood is key to maintaining good oral health in the future. By the time a child reaches 2 years of age, you must make an appointment for their first visit with a children’s dentist. There may be some rare circumstances that would warrant a visit to a dental provider before this age, but for most children, this is the age when their official dental care begins.
On their first visit to the practise, this will be an opportunity for your child to become acquainted with the dental chair, environment, staff, and their dentist. The dentist will perform a visual examination of your child’s teeth, as well as address any concerns or identify any possible future issues.
