Children's Check Up

How Important Is Children's Dental Health

Dental decay in children is very common and recent surveys have shown that one in four children have some element tooth decay. This can pose many problems such as pain, difficulty sleeping, days missed at school and missed days of work for parents.

Whilst treating the decay is part of the solution, our goal is to educate and inform all of our patients to help prevent tooth decay and maintain good oral health. Education about dietary habits, nutrition and fluoride advice are a key part of this process.

Our focus at Bell Yard dental is on prevention and part of this is instilling good habits into children about oral health from a very young age. This is achieved through making the experience a positive one from their very first visit. This helps us build trust, and build a relationship which help maintain good oral health for a lifetime.
