At The Smile Place Mt Eliza we offer complimentary dental examinations up until the age of 5 (when you bring them along to your own dental examination).
This means regular 6 monthly examinations and cleans at regular intervals, based on an a tailored treatment program for your oral health..
As soon as a tooth appears, it should be kept clean.
You should brush your toddler’s teeth (or tooth) at least twice a day, using a child’s toothpaste (which is lower in fluoride), and a small soft child’s toothbrush. Always use a children’s toothpaste until they are old enough to spit out the paste – usually at 5 or 6 years old.
The dentist will advise how often to have checkups, but usually we recommend every 6 months, unless there is something to be concerned about. You should book the entire family every 6 months, so that it becomes a normal, routine visit, and any problems are detected before they become big issues.
