At Clocktower Dental Surgery, we’re committed to protecting and promoting the long-term overall oral health of our youngest patients.

When should I first bring my child in for a check-up?

Here at Clocktower Dental Surgery, we recommend parents bring their children in for their first dental check-up when their first tooth erupts, or by the time they turn one.

Why is it important to bring children in from an early age?

Bringing children in from such an early age not only allows us to spot problems sooner but also gets them use to the environment.  This will hopefully stop any anxieties or nerves over visiting the dentist from emerging and help make them feel comfortable and confident when receiving treatment. It should also help encourage them to take good care of their teeth and oral health at home.

What happens during a dental check-up for children?

At their first dental check up we will perform a simple examination of the mouth, making sure everything is as it should be. During these appointments, we’ll also be able to detect any issues and recommend treatment if needed. This could be fluoride treatments or sealants for example, or in older children, orthodontic treatment. We will also be able to advise on preventive measures such as home care, diet advice, and suggest a recall period.
