The importance of check ups

Children’s dental health should always be a priority. Strong healthy teeth and gums will ensure good dental health in adulthood. By bringing your children along with you for regular check-ups, children are getting into the habit and routine nice and early. “Prevention is better than cure.“ Give your children the start they deserve. They gain confidence with the surroundings of the Clinic and with our staff.

At the Bridge Dental Clinic we recommend check-ups from the age of 3 years old. Detection of decay at an early stage is vital to be able to treat the child with a realistic chance of being able to do it with the minimum of fuss. Remember children don’t have decay in their teeth when they are born!
As children grow, an early assessment of their bite and a review of the occlusion, can help predict the need for Orthodontics. You do not have to wait until the teenage years to correct Orthodontic problems. There is so much that can be treated easily and far cheaper from the age of 7 – 8 years old. Rather than waiting until the discrepancy is very badly entrenched and the child has had to live with their crooked smile for years, totally unnecessarily.
