Pediatric Dental Hygiene Care
Children should begin seeing a Dentist or Dental Hygienist at the age of 3 to assess tooth eruption, adequate spacing, jaw alignment, possible oral habits (thumb sucking, tongue thrust, mouth breathing, clenching or grinding of teeth) and baby bottle caries. All findings will be recorded and discussed with the parent/s. Referrals will be given accordingly. X-rays are generally taken around the age of 6 which will then require a visit to the dentist.
