  • Oral Health For Infants And Toddlers

    Children´s primary (baby) teeth are important for many reasons. They play a vital role in healthy diet, learning to speak and showing a child´s unique personality. In addition, primary teeth keep the correct spaces for the permanent (adult) teeth to move into later on. For all these reasons, it is important to take good care of the primary teeth.
  • Oral Health For Children 3-12

    By 3 years of age, your child will have all 20 primary (baby) teeth. The primary teeth are important for many reasons and need to be taken care of until the adult teeth replace them. From about 6-12 years of age your child will lose all the baby teeth as the permanent teeth emerge.
  • How To Brush - Teeth Brushing Techniques

    Proper brushing takes at least two minutes – that's right, 120 seconds! Most adults do not come close to brushing that long. To get a feel for the time involved, try using a stopwatch. To properly brush your teeth, use short, gentle strokes, paying extra attention to the gumline, hard-to-reach back teeth and areas around fillings, crowns or other restoration.
  • Importance of Childhood Oral Hygiene & the Role of Parents

    The foundation for healthy permanent teeth in children and teenagers is laid during the first years of life. Poor diet, poor habits of food intake and inadequate toothbrushing habits during the first 2 years of life have been shown in several studies to be related to tooth decay in children. The development of caries in primary teeth further increases the risk of developing caries in permanent teeth.
