Protecting children’s teeth and gums

More than 75% of all children aged under 5 have never been to the dentist, according to the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics Survey (HILDA Report) released by the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research on 20 July.

ADA NSW recommends that children see a dentist at 12 months of age or after they get their first tooth, and should then revisit the dentist every 6 months.

Regular visits to the dentist are especially important for young children as baby teeth can easily become infected and are prone to decay.
