Children’s Dentistry Gold Coast

With proper care from an early age, your child can achieve optimal oral health for life!

Children should first visit the dentist after their first birthday, or 6 months after their teeth first erupt- whichever comes first. This is a great way to form a healthy relationship with your dentist, and to check for issues such as baby bottle tooth decay. This can be done during your regular check-up, and routine check-ups for your child should follow every six months.

Oral hygiene tips for children

  • Never put your child to sleep with a bottle of juice or milk. Due to lower salivary flow during sleep and higher susceptibility to cavities and plaque, this can encourage a whole night of tooth decay.
  • Clean your infant’s gums with a clean, damp cloth twice a day.
  • When teeth come in, begin brushing them with a small, soft-bristled toothbrush and a small dab of low fluoride toothpaste.
  • By approximately age 5, your child can learn to brush his or her teeth with proper parental instruction and supervision.
