Children’s Teeth

At Ormond Terrace Dental in Cheltenham, we believe that you are never too young (or too old) to benefit from great dental care.

Our mission is the prevention of decay and promotion of healthy smiles for all, especially young children and we are committed to helping everybody maintain good oral health.

We encourage parents to bring children with them from an early age as this helps to reduce any anxiety that they may feel and enables us to promote an early interest in dental health and prevention of dental disease. Our continued goal is to give your child a gentle introduction to general dentistry and help them to develop good habits necessary to keep their teeth healthy for a lifetime, whilst helping and encouraging parents to assist in their child’s well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

At what age should I bring my child in for their first dental visit?

It is recommended that children first go to the dentist by the time they reach their first birthday, or within 6 months of their first tooth appearing, whichever comes first. This is because early dental visits can help to detect and prevent potential dental problems, and also help children to become familiar with dental check-ups, reducing the likelihood of dental anxiety in the future. After their first visit, it is generally recommended that children continue to see a dentist regularly, typically every six months or as recommended by their dentist.

Generally, dental checkups and cleanings should be scheduled every six months for optimal oral health. However, individual needs may vary, and our dentists will recommend a personalized schedule based on factors such as age, dental history, and overall oral health.
