Frequently Asked Questions

When should I take my child for their first dental check-up?


A good rule of thumb is to bring your child to the dentist when the first tooth appears, or by their first birthday. Taking your child to the dentist before their first birthday prevents future decay and dental issues.




How often should i take my child to the dentist?


On average, dentists recommend you take your child every six months for a check-up to avert cavities and other dental problems.




What age should children start using toothpaste, and how much should be used?


The recommended age to start using fluoridated toothpaste on children is three. Until then, clean your child’s teeth with water and soft-bristled toothbrush. Once your child has reached the age of three, parents should supervise the brushing and allow them to use no more than pea-sized amount of toothpaste.




What is the best kind of toothbrush & toothpaste for children?


Look for a toothbrush that has a small head and soft, nylon bristles. Pro Tip: Finding a colorful brush with lights or pictures of their favorite cartoon characters may help your child get excited for their twice-daily brushing sessions. We recommend sugar free , anti cavity ,foaming toothpaste with fluoride content less than 500 ppm eg toothmin, gc tooth mousse




When do baby teeth fall out?





Are baby teeth really that important to my child?


Primary, or baby, teeth are important for many reasons. Not only do they help children speak clearly and chew naturally, they also aid in forming a path that permanent teeth can follow when they are ready to erupt. It is important to remember that oral health affects more than the health of your teeth. Cavities in baby teeth cause pain and swelling that can be tremendously uncomfortable for your child.




How can I prevent my child from thumbsucking ?


Thumbsucking is a natural reflex for little ones — babies even do it in the womb. It's soothing, and many kids stop on their own around ages 2 to 4. Thumbsucking is certainly nothing to worry about with infants, and might even help them fall asleep more quickly. It should be strictly discouraged after 4 years. Problems can arise when kids do a lot of active sucking, especially when their permanent teeth start coming in. Your dentist can offer advice on how to monitor the situation




What is Baby Bottle Tooth Decay ?


Baby bottle tooth decay — also called "early childhood dental caries" — is one of the most important issues in infant tooth care. This condition is caused by frequent exposure, over time, to sugary liquids eg bottle feeding during sleep, which can seriously damage a baby’s teeth and overall oral health.




When does my child first tooth erupts ?


Between 3 and 9 months, your infant's baby teeth will begin to emerge (erupt) into the mouth. Teething may make your child irritable or fussy and may cause restlessness, drooling or loss of appetite.
