Young teeth need just as much care and attention as adult teeth. We recommend introducing your child to the dentist as soon as their first teeth start to appear. Even though we won’t be able to see or examine much at this age, early visits can help your child get used to visiting the dentist and reduce any nervousness. You can also get helpful advice about caring for your child’s teeth, including brushing tips and dietary advice.
Children’s mouths are constantly changing from when they first develop teeth into their teenage years. We recommend six-monthly check-ups for all under 18s to catch any decay or developmental problems at the right stage. The combination of regular visits to the dentist from a young age, developing a good dental care routine at home and encouraging a healthy diet will help keep your child’s teeth in a great condition.
All under 18’s who are resident in the Bailiwick of Guernsey are entitled to one free check-up per year. Please contact our reception staff for more information.
