Q.

Dental care: 1 year old

Hi,

My baby is 1 year old and has 9 teeth out and one on it' s way. There is 4 at the bottom, and will soon be six at the top, my questions are as follows: -

1) At what age should I take my son for a dental check up? If so, can you you recommend one in centurion.
2) He has been brushing his teeth for a few months now (his version) and I have been using a sugar free and flouride free toothpaste. Is flouride safe? And if so how much of it?
3) What is the purpose of zymaflour tabs and are they recommended?


Thanks for your help.

Lin

check ups generaaly start as early as 2 years old. zymaflour contains flouride and strengthens the enamel of the teeth.
