Your child can visit the dentist as early as he/ she has teeth.
It is important to bring the child for regular dental checkups and develop a positive experience towards the visit to the dental clinic.
Your dentist can assess and identify dental problems early, before they progress and result in more severe problems.
Common dental problems young children may have are:
- Tooth decay, causing toothache
- Gum problem
- Missing primary or permanent teeth
- Problem with teeth eruption
Some of these problems e.g. tooth decay and gum problem, can be prevented with regular checkups and early intervention.
Proper home care is also very important for good and healthy teeth and gum in young children.
