Your child will eventually lose their baby teeth, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t incredibly important. They help your child to eat properly, and to learn to speak properly too. They also keep the space in the mouth for each adult tooth to come through correctly.
When your child grows to 6 months 20 baby teeth will have come through, although every child is different and this can vary. As these teeth come through we continue to monitor the teeth, gums, oral tissues and jaw to ensure development is as it should be.
If there are any issues, we diagnose them early and develop a suitable treatment plan to help avoid orthodontic issues and any other complications at a later stage.
If your child shows signs of any dental issues, from the simplest to the most complicated, we act quickly to stop it worsening. We may recommend diet and habit changes, orthodontics, general dentistry or possibly restorative treatments depending on the issue. Usually, the most complex plans require a multi-disciplinary approach.
Throughout treatment you will remain fully informed, with regular chats, diagnostics and straight-forward quotes for any costs. We will always be here to answer your questions, and you will always be in control of your child’s oral care at every stage.
With our dedicated team expertise and care, we are able to help children of all ages to grow strong teeth and gums all the way through to adulthood, for a healthy smile for life!
