Caring For Your Child’s Teeth

Bring your children to the dentist from the youngest age possible, even if it is just to watch yourself have a regular check-up. Familiarise them to the surroundings as this will have a positive effect in the future when they decide to sit in the chair for their check ups!
Every time your child attends Anchor Road Dental Practice and comes into our surgery to see the dentist they will always be rewarded with a sticker.

Your little toddlers first teeth usually appear at about 6 months old and we advise you begin supervised brushing at this time. Use only a pea-sized smear of toothpaste containing 1000ppm of fluoride. After the age of three fluoride can be increased upto 1500ppm, but continue to use only a pea-sized smear under supervision as children have a tendancy to swallow toothpaste. Supervision can be minimised after 7 years old once your child understands not to swallow the toothpaste and you are confident that they are brushing correctly.

Sugar causes tooth decay. Minimising its content in the diet will help keep their teeth healthy.

Covid-19 update 02/06/2020

On 29th of May the government announced that dental practices may reopen from 8th of June, subject to stringent measures to protect staff and patients.  We have been preparing the practice to accommodate these changes but guidance from the government has been limited. Further information has been promised  this week. There is a also still a national shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) but we expect this to improve soon.

 

Please bear with us as we endeavour to make the surgery safe for your return over the coming weeks taking the above into consideration. In the meantime we will still be available for telephone advice between 9am and 4.30pm on weekdays and between 9am and 12pm weekends and bank holidays. Please ring the practice during these hours on 01922 452540. Our help sheet provides tips on how to manage dental problems at home.

 

Thank you for your patience.
