Children’s Clinic at Farsley Dental, Leeds
Maintaining Your Children’s Teeth For Life!
Children’s dental healthcare is a hugely important part of growing up and is a major factor for deciding exactly what an individual’s oral health will be like as they grow older.
Telling children about the importance of dental health and ensuring they have high quality dental care is something many parents put a great deal of effort into, which is why at Farsley dental we offer a full children’s clinic with which parents and children can gain the following benefits:
- Ensure your children have optimal dental healthcare
- Teaching children themselves about the important of oral health
- Making dental health fun and exciting for children
Why choose a children’s dental clinic as an option for my children’s smiles?
At Farsley Dental, we work closely with parents to understand exactly what they want for their children’s oral health.
Offering modern and child-friendly treatments and procedures, we can make sure that all children are given expert care at all stages of development.
Tooth brushing tips
- Brush your child’s teeth for about two minutes twice a day: once just before bedtime and at least one other time during the day
- Encourage them to spit out excess toothpaste, but not to rinse with lots of water. Rinsing with water after tooth brushing will wash away the fluoride and make it less effective
- Supervise tooth brushing until your child is seven or eight years old, either by brushing their teeth yourself or, if they brush their own teeth, by watching how they do it. From the age of seven or eight, they should be able to brush their own teeth, but it’s still a good idea to watch them now and again to make sure they brush properly and for about two minutes
How to help children brush their teeth properly
- Guide your child’s hand so they can feel the correct movement
- Use a mirror to help your child see exactly where the brush is cleaning their teeth
- Make tooth brushing as fun as possible by using an egg timer to time it for about two minutes
- Don’t let children run around with a toothbrush in their mouth, as they may have an accident and hurt themselves.
