Treatment for children at 207 Dental Care
At 207 Dental Care we love to look after your little ones!
It’s really important to educate children about their oral health as early as possible. This is the best way of ensuring they understand how to look after their teeth now- and that they have the knowledge to maintain a healthy and attractive smile in the future.
With modern dentistry and better education regarding oral health more and more people now find they are keeping their natural teeth into old age. Hopefully this will continue and our children will find that their natural teeth are still healthy and strong many years from now.
At 207 Dental Care we love to look after your little ones. We aim to make their visits fun yet educational and all children are able to choose a sticker before they go home.

How can you look after your child’s teeth?
- Register your baby with a dentist from birth and aim to take them for regular check-ups from around 6 months of age.
- As soon as teeth appear, get your child into a pattern of brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste – so that it becomes a natural part of their routine. (They will require supervision until around 7 years.)
- Keep a close eye on their diet. Avoid sugary food and drinks between meals which could damage little teeth. Encourage foods high in calcium (milk, cheese, yoghurt) to promote good bone and tooth development.
- Limit the use of dummies and bottles as your baby grows- speak to your dentist or health visitor for more information.
- Always make sure they wear helmets and protective gear when playing contact sports, skateboarding, riding bikes and scooters etc.
- If you are uneasy at the dentist, try to not to show this to your child as they may well develop a fear of their own.
