At Complete Dental Coorparoo, we are passionate about helping children achieve and maintain healthy and bright smiles for a lifetime.
Creating healthy dental hygiene habits and routines within your child’s life is extremely important and vital to ensure their overall health and wellbeing. Because of this we recommend that you bring your child in for an appointment as early as the age of 2. From then on, we recommend bringing your child in for their regular check-up and clean every six months.
Dentistry for children
At Complete Dental Coorparoo we want your child to be excited about coming to the dentist and the last thing we want is for them to be anxious or nervous about it. Our aim is to have your child feel completely comfortable about coming to see us for their check-up. The team will always explain every aspect of the check-up to you and your child beforehand to ensure you are both fully informed. We can then focus on building up a positive environment for your child’s visit to the dentist.
Developing their dental hygiene routine
By setting a good example from the beginning, you can help to create a healthy routine for your child’s dental and overall health for the future. Supervising your children while they brush their teeth is another beneficial technique in establishing a good oral hygiene routine. In addition to brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day, it’s a good idea for your child to drink plenty of water in order to stay hydrated as part of a healthy and wholesome diet. A well-balanced diet, consuming foods from all sections of the healthy food pyramid, and limiting sugary foods and drinks, can prevent decay and help to strengthen and protect your child’s teeth. If necessary, we can also apply fissure sealants as a protective coating to effectively reduce your child’s risk of cavities and can make it easier to clean.
