If you are doing all the right things by your little children – a healthy, non-sugared diet and with daily tooth cleaning and flossing – you may wonder if it’s really necessary to bring them for a regular check-up with us at your Epping Dentist. Well, yes, it is still a very good idea for your child to have a regular dental check-up, so we can monitor the general dental condition of your child’s mouth, teeth and jaws and keep an eye out for any anomalies.

Oral care with dentures

If you are about to get a denture fitted, your Epping Dentist team at Rawson Dental really want you to know how to care for your oral hygiene in this new situation.

Oral hygiene for children

Your friendly Dentist Epping team at Rawson Dental would love to talk with you about your children’s oral hygiene. If you realise that you haven’t been actively caring for your toddler’s teeth, it’s not too late to start! Of course, the earlier you start the better – but after a while is definitely better than any time later than that. But what does oral hygiene for children involve? There are five elements to it: brushing, flossing, healthy eating, drinking fluoridated tap water and visiting your Dentist Epping team at Rawson Dental. Children need to brush their teeth twice a day…
