At Young Dentistry, we love to see kids and their parents. With kids we recommend they be seen before their first birthday.
It may be for just a quick look and to give parents some advice on how to care for their little one’s teeth. It is important however to begin to clean and monitor a child’s teeth as soon as he or she gets his or her first tooth (usually at six to nine months of age). By monitoring and controlling sugar intake in the early years, tooth decay in primary teeth can be minimized or avoided. Allowing your baby to fall asleep with a bottle of sweetened liquid during naps or at night is highly discouraged and can especially harm his or her teeth. If you suspect tooth decay, which can look like brown or chalky-white discolouration, please call us.
