It is recommended to make an appointment within the first 6 that your toddler gets their first tooth.

Taking your child to the dentist regularly will help to establish good dental hygiene, and prevent any oral health problems, keeping their smile as healthy as possible. At the routine dental check-up the dentist will look at the growth of new teeth and provide interceptive orthodontic treatment for the straight positioning of teeth where they can see it may be possible.

Pre-Orthodontic Treatment at Saints Dental Salisbury Plain may include myobraces which are for growing adult teeth and preventing the use of braces in the future as early as possible.  Improving head posture and ensuring the perfect alignment of teeth for life. myobraces are usually prescribed for children aged 5-10 years of age that show signs of forming an uneven alignment of teeth.

The dentist will check all the baby teeth, and adult teeth if any, plus gums and plaque build-up. Once all of your child’s adult teeth have appeared, they might need braces to ensure that their teeth are as straight as possible. From the ages of approximately 12-18, making adjustments, replacing wires and attending to rubber bands, it’s much easier to keep the area’s of teeth covered by braces clean by attending Saints Dental regularly 4-8 months.
