Dental recommendations for children? Your child should see a dentist by his first birthday. Early preventive care saves you money in the long run. A CDC report shows that dental care costs are nearly 40% lower over a 5-year period for children who see a dentist by age 5. Your dentist can suggest when your child should start using mouthwash. You’ll need to wait until he knows how to spit it out.
Babies are born with all their teeth – you can’t see them because they are hidden in the gums. Baby teeth start to break through the gums around 6 months but it is important to start good oral care for infants even before the first tooth comes in. From healthy gums come healthy teeth. Wipe your baby’s gums with a soft washcloth after feeding. This helps remove the bacteria that can cause tooth decay.
At Toothbeary we use hypnosis techniques to help your child relax during treatment. Hypnosis works by focusing the child’s awareness on non-threatening aspects of the experience, whilst in a trance-like state. By narrating positive thoughts and diverting the child’s mind from the treatment, it helps him/her to “switch off”, while still remaining responsive. Children feel pleasantly influenced by hypnosis, creating an overall happy experience. If a child is traumatised we offer hypnotherapy, which will help to overcome his/her fear and build up a trustful relationship again.

Summer dental tip : Keep Bedtime Routines Consistent while Traveling: During the fun and excitement of a summer trip, it can be easy for a child to forget to brush their teeth. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, make sure you remind your child when it’s time to brush their teeth once you get back to the hotel room. Sometimes it can be hard for children to stick to routines when in a new place. This is why we recommend laying your child’s toothbrush and toothpaste out on the bathroom counter as a reminder for them to brush their teeth. Make sure to keep other parts of your nighttime routine consistent to help them remember when it’s time to brush their teeth.
