Frequently Asked Questions
The American Academy of Paediatric Dentistry recommends bringing your child for their first dental visit by their first birthday or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth. Early dental visits are essential for monitoring dental development, providing preventive care, and establishing a positive relationship with the dentist from an early age.
Preparing your child for their dental visit can help ease any anxiety they may have. Talk to your child about the dental visit in a positive and age-appropriate way. Use simple language to explain that the dentist will check their teeth and make sure they are healthy. Reading children's books about dental visits or role-playing with a toy dentist kit can also be helpful in familiarising them with the experience.
Kids Dentistry at Mary St. Dental Health offers a range of age-appropriate treatments, including dental check-ups, dental cleanings, dental sealants, fluoride treatments, cavity prevention strategies, and orthodontic evaluations. Our paediatric dentists are specially trained to provide gentle and patient-centred care, ensuring a positive experience for your child.
Dental X-rays are safe for children when used in a controlled and appropriate manner. At Mary St. Dental Health, we use modern digital X-ray technology, which significantly reduces radiation exposure compared to traditional film X-rays. We also take extra precautions, such as using lead aprons and collars, to shield children from unnecessary radiation exposure during X-ray procedures.
Establishing good oral hygiene habits at home is crucial for your child's oral health. Encourage them to brush their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and to floss daily. Supervise their brushing until they have the dexterity to do it effectively on their own. Limit sugary snacks and drinks and encourage a balanced diet that supports healthy teeth. Regularly attend dental check-ups to monitor their oral health and receive guidance on maintaining good oral hygiene.
