WHEN SHOULD I START BRUSHING MY BABY'S TEETH?
It is important to begin brushing your baby's teeth as soon as they appear in the mouth, with a baby tooth brush. We recommend no toothpaste under the age of one. It is important to use a child's toothpaste, between the ages of one and six, and only ever use less than a pea size amount. Never use adult toothpaste for your baby's teeth. Treat toothpaste like a medicine, and keep it out of your baby, or child's reach.
WHAT PREVENTIVE CARE DO I NEED TO PROVIDE FOR MY CHILD?
Children’s teeth begin forming before birth. As early as four months the first primary or baby teeth can erupt through the gums. All 20 of the primary teeth usually appear by age three, although their pace and order of eruption varies.
Permanent teeth begin appearing around age six. This process will continue until approximately age 21, depending on whether wisdom teeth are present.
To help ensure oral health and a lifetime of good oral care habits follow these key preventive measures:
* Limit sugar intake to help prevent tooth decay.
* Make sure children get enough fluoride, either through drinking water or as a treatment at the dentist’s office to strengthen tooth enamel and resist decay.
* Consider dental sealants to provide a further layer of protection against cavities. They are made of an advanced plastic and are bonded to the teeth by a dental professional.
* Teach kids to brush and floss regularly and properly. Try creating ways to make brushing and flossing fun for your child in order to encourage a good oral health routine. Sometimes we ask children to brush their teeth to their favourite song, to ensure that they are brushing for around two minutes.

WHEN SHOULD I START BRUSHING MY BABY'S TEETH?
Bonsoir! Well that went fast. January is almost a fleeting memory, as we venture into the year. As one might expect, it has been so far full of smiles that visit us, requesting to be checked, professionally scaled, whitened and the like.
The year is promising to be another great one for our team. Sonia, our patient co-ordinator is on reception. Nikita is the senior assistant to Dr Amy Daley, who is working Tuesday, Wednesday and Fridays from 7.30am to 3.30pm. Holly is the senior assistant to Leila Haywood, as well as her training up in 2016 and venturing into the business of beauty, which is perfect for her, given her eye for precision and style.
Christine is our dental hygienist, who attends to the magic that is Zoom technology, with transformations that impress our dentists. She has been caring for all the children who were on school holidays, starting kindy, prep, and school and the teenagers heading to high school and uni. The start of the year is the perfect time for a smile check, and everything else in between, and Christine assists our dentist to have all of our patients having the healthiest smiles possible.
Best Wishes to everyone as the year is well and truly underway, and wishing you days of happiness and sunshine.
It would be mine and Dr Amy's pleasure to be of assistance with any dental requirements.

End of year is always incredibly busy for our practice, and it continues like this into the new year until February.
Dr Leila Haywood is taking leave from the 16th December to the 9th of January. Dr Amy Daley is on holidays from the 23rd December until the 2nd of January.
Please let us know if you need an appointment prior to Christmas. The time limit for porcelain prior to the end of year is approaching. There are 2 more weeks that allow porcelain restorations to be made by our ceramist, and inserted prior to the end of 2016.
Wishing everyone the best
