Your child's dental health plays a crucial role in the overall development of their general health and well being.

The sooner children begin getting regular dental checkups, the healthier their mouths will stay throughout their lives. Early checkups help prevent cavities and tooth decay, which can lead to pain, trouble concentrating and other medical issues. Youngsters with healthy teeth chew food easily, learn to speak clearly and smile with confidence.

The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Paediatrics say that every child should visit a dentist by age 1 or as soon as the first tooth appears. This “well baby visit” teaches parents how to care for their children’s teeth and help them remain cavity-free.

At Healthy Roots, we see many young patients with cavities that came from falling asleep with a bottle of milk or juice in mouth. The dentist @ Healthy Roots can tell the parent

  • Why this causes decay.
  • The importance of encouraging children to drink milk, water and juice from a cup as they approach their first birthday.
  • How to brush young teeth.

It is estimated that a large proportion of children (40%) have tooth decay by the time they are 5 years. Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease among children.

At Healthy Roots, your child will be examined in a safe, state of the art, child friendly clinic, with international standards of care and strict sterilization procedures. Our aim is to incorporate good dental habits in your child and make tooth brushing fun for them.
