What Age Should Children Start Seeing A Dentist?

Your child’s first check-up should be around the 1st birthday. This is approximately 6 months after their first tooth has erupted. Caring for your child’s teeth early is important because studies show that most pre-school aged children have already got cavities that could have been avoided.

The purpose of the age 1 dental visit is to learn about your child's oral health and how to best care for your child's unique needs before any problems occur.

3 Tips To Help Your Child Look Forward To The Dentist:

TIP 1: When talking to your child or around your child about dentists, be positive. Children learn a lot from the beliefs of their parents.

TIP 2: Bring your child into the dental practice just to have a look around prior to their appointment, or bring them with you when you or an older sibling is having a dental appointment so they can see what happens. Informal visits help to familiarise them with the surroundings.

TIP 3: Arrive early for your child’s appointment. You don’t want to be in a rush, adding stress to the situation. By arriving 5 minutes early your child can become familiar with the surroundings.

First Examination

The first examinations are a quick look using a dental mirror. Counting the teeth and looking for signs of decay. As the child's confidence grows your dentist will carry out a more thorough examination.

Depending on your child’s needs we’ll schedule a future check-up, which is usually in 12 month’s time.

Standard Check Up

During a standard appointment the dentist will look at the following:

  • Which teeth have erupted (come through the gum).
  • The development of the jaw.
  • The soft tissues (tongue, cheeks, lips and throat).
  • Any cavities in the teeth.
  • The alignment of teeth.
  • Whether orthodontics is required.

If your child is prone to tooth decay in their baby teeth your dentist may recommend fluoride treatment or fissure sealant.

Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealant is a tooth-coloured liquid. It is applied on the chewing surface or the molar teeth which are prone to decay.

As soon as your child’s second (adult) teeth come through it is applied. It is effective in preventing cavities from forming in the early years.

Fissure sealants fill the deep pits and grooves in the molar teeth, making it easier to clean your teeth and prevent cavities from forming.
