Caring for children’s teeth: prevention better than cure

For children starting the regular dental check-ups is of paramount importance and we often welcome youngsters at our Glasgow dental clinic.

My eldest son, who’s four, popped in for his six monthly check-up just the other day with his mum who’s a paediatric dental specialist.

Six-monthly check-up for children is key part of dental care.

Six-monthly check for children is key part of dental care programme.

His clinical and x ray examinations showed a healthy, well maintained dentition and some fluoride was applied for good measure.

Even the children of dentists enjoy sweet treats from time to time, but with thorough brushing twice per day and regular check ups, the potentially destructive effects of these treats can be controlled.

BRUSH REGULARLY

If your child enjoys sweet treats or drinks, ensure that they brush their teeth regularly (even straight away after the treat if possible).

And aim to limit the intake of sweets and fruit or carbonated drinks to meal times.

Prevention is always far better than cure.
