So you’ve decided to start a family in Weston-super-mare and you’ve had the kids- now the real hard work starts because you have to look after their health until they are old enough and capable enough to make their own informed decisions; this is especially true of their teeth. Getting your child’s teeth right from the beginning can reflect on their mouths for the rest of their lives. From a baby, the teeth are starting to grow, but it’s important to be ready for when they break through the gums. Diet and cleaning the teeth play an important factor here as the teeth are very prone to tooth decay. This is the time to get a good pediatric dentist on board to help during this tricky time. As your child starts to grow, what you feed them and how you teach them to clean their teeth, again, is vital, for the next big thing is when the secondary teeth start to evolve in the mouth. Essentially, it all boils down to you, how you educate them into looking after themselves and their teeth, and keeping them away from sugary or starchy foods until you are sure the message has got through. Sticking with the same dentist around this time is useful for building up not only a rapport and trust between them and your child, but also to get a good overall historical picture of your child’s oral health.
