Preventing tooth decay is very important for their long-term oral health. Although your child’s baby teeth will fall out naturally, if they lose a tooth too soon from decay, it can result in the permanent adult teeth to come through crooked leading to gum or jaw problems. Corrective treatment such as orthodontic braces may be required down the track.
We recommend that your child has a regular check-up every six to twelve months, to enable us to monitor your child’s oral health and detect any problems in their early stages. Early intervention allows us to prescribe the best treatment to prevent a small problem from becoming a large one.
