Specialist Kids Dentist generally recommend scheduling check ups every six to nine months. Depending on the circumstances of your child’s oral health, we may recommend more frequent visits (for example, if your child is more susceptible to cavities, or if your child is showing signs of orthodontic problems that need to be monitored).
We are always amazed at how much your child’s mouth can change in six months. Even children with apparently clean teeth who don’t seem to eat much sugar often develop small cavities. Since the “nerve” in baby teeth is only millimeters from the outside surface, the decay can often reach this critical area before anyone can visually see the cavity. As well as monitoring new changes in your child’s mouth, our Paediatric Dentists will also evaluate facial growth and development patterns of your child, note any tongue, lip, cheek or thumb habits that may influence the development of attractive teeth and determine if there is a need for any orthodontic treatment.
