When Should Kids Start Visiting the Dentist?

We advise parents to bring their kids to the dentist as soon as possible, preferably from the age of one year old or when their teeth first start to appear. We encourage this so they can get used to the dental chair and to identify any early signs of tooth decay or other dental concerns that may need treatment down the track.

What Happens on Their First Visit?

Dependent on the child, they can either have a sit in the chair and just get used to the room, or if they allow, let the dentist to have a look in their mouth for them to do an examination and take some x-rays. We use x-rays when children are old enough to have them, which tends to be from 6+ years old.

How Should You Keep Your Kids’ Teeth Healthy?

Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine and keeping sugar and starch consumption to a minimum is recommended for optimum oral health.

Up to the age of 4-5 years old, a child needs their teeth to be brushed twice a day and flossed daily for them. After this age, they may start brushing their own teeth under your supervision.

At 8 years of age, your child may be ready to start brushing and flossing unsupervised, however if you’re not certain they’re properly brushing or flossing, you may need to continue supervising them until they’re older.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I really need to floss my child’s teeth?

Yes. When teeth aren’t flossed, roughly a third of tooth surfaces are left unclean. Flossing is needed as soon as two teeth touch. You can encourage your child by creating a game out of it or putting on a favourite song.

27% of Aussie kids aged between 5 to 10 years have untreated tooth decay in their baby teeth. It remains the most common chronic disease in childhood. Daily flossing and brushing helps to keep teeth and gums healthier for longer.

Is thumb-sucking or dummy use bad for teeth?

Forceful sucking when the mouth, jaws and teeth are still developing can cause issues in oral development and teeth alignment. If you have concerns about dummy use or thumb-sucking, speak to your dentist. They will be able to suggest ways to help you break their habit.

When do baby teeth start falling out?

Kids usually begin to lose their baby teeth between the ages of 5 and 6 years old. When the adult tooth is ready to come through, the baby tooth is only holding on by a little amount of tissue. It’s possible for your child to wiggle a loose baby tooth out using their tongue or by hand using a quick twisting motion.

What’s the Child Dental Benefits Scheme?

The Child Dental Benefits Scheme is a government benefit that provides $1,000 towards basic dental costs for each eligible child over 2 calendar years. To be eligible to claim CDBS, you must:

  • Have a child aged 2 to 17 years
  • Receive certain Medicare payments at least once a year
  • Choose eligible dental services
