Interesting Facts from A to Z
We want the best for your teeth. That's why we have put some information together here to help you the next time you visit our practice. It can also help you understand more about prevention and other dentistry topics.
Preventative care: At least every 6 months
If you take special care of your teeth and they are in good condition, you should come to see us for a checkup at least twice a year. If your teeth are predisposed to problems, you should be on the safe side and make an appointment for more regular preventative care.
Our tip: Come in for a consultation and make the next appointment after each visit.
Start 'em Early
Proper oral hygiene habits are learned early. As soon as your toddler can manage a toothbrush (24-30 months), supervised brushing instructions can create beneficial habits that last a lifetime. Remember, children under the age of 6 should be supervised at all times as swallowing toothpaste can be harmful. Therfore, only unfluoridated toothpaste should be used up to the age of 6.
Dr. Alshahwany recommends the first dental visit should be at the age of one or when the first tooth erupts (which ever occurs first). Establishing regular visits at a young age has proven to improve the health and stability of adult teeth.
The first visit is to have a general check up and to familiarize the child to the dental office setup and reduce the chance of dental phobia in the future.
