Did you know...?
The tusks of many mammals alive today are actually elongated teeth - these include elephants, walruses and narwhals.
But in prehistoric times they were even longer...
The Etruscans (who lived in what is now central and northern Italy) had dentures two and a half thousand years ago!
Your child's first dental visit is a way to meet the dental team in a non-threatening and friendly way. Ideally take your child for a dental check-up before they turn 2 years of age, especially if you think there may be a problem.
Early Childhood Decay (tooth decay) can start soon after teeth appear in the mouth and can cause pain, sleeping difficulty and eating problems. It is the most common and costly childhood disease in Australia. YOU can help prevent it.
Good dental health starts at a young age so make cleaning your child's gums and teeth an everyday habit.
