Children’s Dentistry

Children are made very welcome at The Priors Dental Practice and there is no minimum age.

We provide a friendly, relaxing environment and out of school hours appointments from 3.30pm Monday – Friday. What’s more we also offer a Children’s Practice Plan from just £6.50 per month.

Regular visits to the dentist are crucial for the overall dental health and wellbeing of children. Not only do these visits help prevent cavities, but they also allow dentists to identify and address any dental issues at an early stage, ensuring long-term oral health. Furthermore, instilling good dental habits in children from a young age is essential, and regular dental check-ups play a significant role in achieving this goal.

By promoting a positive relationship between children and their dentists, regular dental visits are more likely to be seen as a routine part of healthcare, resulting in healthier teeth and gums throughout their lives.

Start young
You should start cleaning your child’s teeth as soon as they come through the gums. There are special toothbrushes and toothpastes for babies.
 
For 3 year olds and younger
If your child is less than three years old, only use a smear of toothpaste. After that, use an amount about the size of a small pea.
 
Brushing
Teach your children to brush at least twice a day (morning and night) with fluoride toothpaste and to floss regularly.
 
Regular check ups
Take your children to the dentist regularly. Don’t skip scheduled appointments.
 
Sugar
Limit or avoid certain sugary foods and drinks.
 
Supervision
Supervise your child when they are brushing their teeth until they are at least 7yrs old.
 
Spit not rince
Encourage your child to spit out toothpaste and not rinse with water, as this reduces the effect of the fluoride.
 
Healthy food
Offer a wide variety of healthy natural foods including fruits, vegetables, grains, cereals, dairy, meat, fish & eggs.
