The Importance Of Dental Hygiene

From their very first visit, your child’s dental experience is extremely important to us.

We want them to get used to the dental environment at their pace, gradually building their confidence. Their visits should always be positive and fun. Our focus at Surbiton Dental is on preventative care. We believe that encouraging good oral health habits and routines at a young age will have a positive impact on their dental health for a lifetime.

When should children start going to the dentist?

Children should start seeing a dentist every 6 months, by their first birthday or once their first tooth erupts. The milk teeth in a growing child are hugely important as these form the foundations for their developing adult teeth.

Regular dental examinations enable us to closely monitor your child’s oral health development, ensuring any issues are picked up and treated quickly. Your dentist will also discuss an oral hygiene routine at home, specific to your child’s needs and provide tips on healthy snacks.

What are dental sealants?

Dental sealants are recommended as a safe and straightforward way to help your child avoid cavities. The procedure is non-invasive, and it takes only a few minutes to place the protective coating across the top of the tooth, providing a protective barrier and an easier cleaning surface.

If you have questions or concerns about your child’s dental health or to book an appointment, please call our practice on 020 8399 4311.


A broken or lost front tooth is heartbreaking for any parent or child. It can cause physical and psychological trauma, as well as years of ongoing dental treatment. It is vital to ensure your child is fully protected.

At Surbiton Dental, we believe that all children should be wearing a sports mouthguard to protect their teeth if they are participating in any sport where they may be at risk. Professional-grade custom fit dental mouthguards for sports are the option for parents who want to ensure their children have the highest levels of protection and comfort.

Although there are many ‘shop brought’ mouthguard options available, these are made of cheaper, less durable materials and, unfortunately, simply don’t offer the same level of protection.

For more information, please visit the dental trauma UK website who advise a ‘No mouthguard, no play’ policy.

At what age child should start brushing teeth?

As soon as teeth begin appearing above the gum line, it’s recommended that you make sure to brush your child’s teeth at least twice a day.

How can I strengthen my childs teeth?

Include healthy food choices while avoiding too much sugar and carbohydrates. Brush teeth immediately after having food.

Why are primary teeth important?

The health and growth of your child’s primary teeth will affect their oral health for the rest of their life. One of the major functions of primary teeth is to hold an appropriate amount of space for developing adult teeth.
