Lets face it, children love candy, chips, sweets, ice-cream etc. And, as a caring parent you would like to instil good oral habits that include regular brushing and care.
At Dr. Soni, we can give your kids an early start
From as young as 1 year old, we share advice on tooth brushing habits, suitable toothpastes, diet, and fluoride use etc. In addition, it allows us to detect any early stages of dental disease, and to apply preventive techniques.
The role of parents
It is necessary for a parent to come with the child on the first visit, to provide us with important background information and to help the child feel more relaxed. We will allow sufficient time to discuss the child's past and present, general health and their previous experience of doctors and dentists. We will examine the child and wherever necessary, x-rays and other diagnostic procedures will be taken into consideration.
What your child is going through
Many dental changes occur in a growing child, and it is important that we monitor the changes at appropriate intervals. During these visits, we will review brushing and plaque control methods.
What about sweets?
Sweet foods have become a routine part of the modern lifestyle, and we would like to show patients how such food and drink can be included in their diet without causing tooth decay. We will encourage your child to maintain high standards of dental health.
