“Healthy Teeth is for Life” from age 0 to 100 and beyond.
At The Gentle Dentist, we believe visits to the dentist should be fun!
A child’s introduction to the dentist is a crucial key to achieving a lifetime of healthy smiles! Our experienced dental team aims to make your child’s introduction to the dentist a fun and enjoyable experience.
We recommend children start coming to the dentist within 6 months of their first tooth appearing, usually 6 to 12 months of age. It is a good idea for the child to accompany their parent during a regular check-up to become familiarised with the practice environment. It gives them a chance to meet the dental team and to take a ride in the chair!
Age 5 and 6 is an important time for a child as this is when adult teeth start to appear. Dental check-ups are a must to ensure that the adult teeth are developing properly. At this visit we will discuss preventative care to protect the new teeth from decay and educate the child so they start to become aware of the importance of oral health!
The teenage years are often a time when diet and oral hygiene become less than ideal. Increased sugar consumption such as soft drinks and poor home dental care leads to lots of dental decay and poor oral health! It is important to continue regular dental visits to encourage and maintain the health of a teenager’s teeth and gums.
For adults, regular dental visits are essential to maintaining oral health. We recommend regular 6 monthly dental visits to remove plaque and tartar, and early detection of any dental disease and decay. Remember, the earlier a problem is detected the simpler the dental treatment is – which means a much shorter and pleasant visit for you!
