An oral health check up should start early enough to ensure high levels of dental health.
Younger patients require special attention and a specialised friendly approach by the dentist.
A positive first impression is the cornerstone for developing a good relationship with the dentist.
Childhood is the best age for implementing an effective prevention regime.
We need to utilise modern techniques such as the use of preventive fillings and sealants at a young age as soon as teeth erupt in the mouth in order to protect them against the risk of developing decay.
An orthodontic evaluation at this young age can also prevent the possible need for extensive orthodontic treatment later.
A common question is,”When should I take my child for its first visit to the dentist?”,
The answer is that prevention and dental care starts as soon as the first teeth erupt at the age of two.
