Paediatric dentistry

Make sure you take great care looking after your child’s milk teeth correctly. Milk teeth don’t just fulfil an important place holder function (premature loss of milk teeth leads to subsequent lack of space in the jaw which can then lead to crowding of the permanent teeth) but you are also laying the foundation for strong and healthy teeth for your child. Because milk teeth can quickly develop larger areas of caries related tooth decay, we recommend a visit to our practice twice a year to monitor them.
