Here at Byways, we see children for free on the NHS.
Our friendly dentists at Byways Dental Practice like to see children from when they start cutting their milk teeth.
We can’t emphasise enough that a child’s baby or primary teeth are of great importance.
These first teeth help will pave the way for secondary teeth, enhance speaking ability and chewing function.
Your child’s teeth provide a wide range of benefits for your child that go beyond aesthetics.
Your child’s teeth also help them to:
- Move air around the mouth in order to form words and enhance their language skills
- Bite and chew properly so they can quickly understand this basic fundamental skill
- Retain proper placement of the teeth so their adult teeth can emerge as they should
Children’s Dentist, Checkendon
At Byways Dental practice we like to think that as a parent you play an active role in your children’s oral wellbeing and you will be a role model for their dietary and oral hygiene habits.
Having young children ourselves, we understand not only the importance behind this, but also how difficult it is to enforce this and know you are always doing what is right for your children
By setting a good example from an early age, you can help create a healthy routine for your child’s future.
Teaching your child while they brush their teeth is a beneficial technique for establishing good oral hygiene and you can make it a fun and rewarding routine.
A balanced diet, with children consuming foods from all sections of the healthy food pyramid, can also help to prevent decay while strengthening and protecting teeth.
