When should a child first visit the dentist?
As soon as he/she will sit in the chair. Before your child’s first visit, we also recommend a technique called ‘modelling’. This technique involves your child observing you, as model, receiving treatment in a relaxed manner.
I have a terrible fear of the dentist from my childhood. I don’t want my child to have the same experience. What should I do?
Call Abbey Dental today on 046 9022889 before your child complains of pain for a fun, friendly and *free first examination. Here at Abbey Dental, we believe every child should visit the dentist in a carefree and relaxed environment.
They are only ‘baby’ teeth. Are they still important?
Yes. ‘Baby’ teeth maintain space and provide support for the upcoming permanent dentition. If you want healthy and pain-free teeth for your child it is imperative to maintain their ‘baby’ teeth from childhood.
How do I maintain my child’s teeth?
Limit sugar intake, especially in liquid form i.e. juices. Practice age appropriate oral hygiene and maintain regular visits to your dentist at Abbey Dental. We will help you and your child have the best oral health possible.
There’s a hole in my child’s tooth. What can be done?
Your child needs to see a dentist. At Abbey Dental we will always, where possible and appropriate, save your child’s tooth with an appropriate restoration.
