Dental Care For Children
Children should be taught to brush their own teeth around age 2 – 3 years. Parents can help their children establish daily tooth brushing routines by brushing at regular times each day. At age 3, your child is ready for his or her first visit to your family dental practice. Typically between ages 7 -12 years, any necessary orthodontic treatment can be assessed. Timing is very important in this process. It will determine if orthodontic care is required and an orthodontist will be recommended.
