When it comes to children, it’s never too early to start thinking about oral health. We provide dental care for all the family and we encourage parents to bring their children for routine check-ups when they are very small to enable them to get used to the dental surgery and get to know their dentist.
Children’s dental health is so important because laying positive foundations during childhood has a massive impact on adult dental health. Children who have good oral health are much more likely to enjoy strong and healthy teeth and gums into adult life.
At City Dental Leeds we understand that kids can find it difficult and many parents face a daily battle to get their children to clean their teeth. If this sounds familiar, we can help! We offer children’s dental hygiene products and we recommend ways to make teeth cleaning fun, such as playing games, brushing together as a family and brushing along to popular songs in the charts. We are also happy to chat to kids about the importance of teeth cleaning and to answer their questions about brushing and why it is important for their teeth, as well as their general health.
We also offer preventative dental care for younger patients to help to protect the teeth and gums from harmful bacteria and increase their chances of staying pain-free. Sealant treatments and fluoride varnish help to strengthen the teeth and lower the risk of tooth decay and they are completely painless and very quick.
If your nippers are in need of a check-up, you have queries about brushing or you simply want advice about getting kids into a good oral hygiene routine, pop in when you’re next in Leeds or give us a quick call!
