Dental Care for Children

childrens dentistryDuring the formative years of their life, it’s vital for children to adopt healthy dental habits that will continue throughout adulthood. At Hocking Dental Care, our dental specialists can provide professional dental care for children of all ages. We are committed to advocating dental hygiene and encouraging good dental habits, including regular brushing and the avoidance of excessive consumption of foods that damage teeth.

How We Can Help

At Hocking Dental Care, we offer comprehensive examinations for children. These check-ups involve checking children for tooth decay, examining their bite, and looking for potential oral issues such as gum and jaw problems. They also give us the opportunity to discuss any dental developmental issues a child may be facing, as well educate parents about the importance of maintaining their children’s dental care to avoid serious problems in the future.

Our dental care for children also includes assistance with a range of traumas and emergencies, including knocked out teeth, chipped teeth, root fractures, and more. We pride ourselves on providing our services in a friendly and welcoming environment that is free of unnecessary stress and anxiety.

We recommend organising examinations every six months to monitor the development of your child’s teeth. This will also help build up the comfort and confidence your child feels when visiting the dentist.

Frequently asked questions

When should I start brushing my child’s teeth?
You should start cleaning your baby’s teeth as soon as the first tooth erupts, which is usually around 6-7 months of age. Make sure to use an extra-soft kid’s toothbrush, but no tooth-paste, because they cannot spit at such a young age. Moreover, the earlier your start brushing your kid’s teeth, the better it is, because it will become a habit as they get older.

When should I start bringing my child to the dentist?
Try and take your child to the dentist before their 2nd birthday. Usually the first visit will just be to familiarise them with the environment.
