When should my child first see a dentist?
The ideal time for your child to meet the dentist is six months after their first (primary) teeth erupt. This gives your dentist a perfect opportunity to carefully examine the development of their mouth and catch problems such as baby bottle tooth decay, teething irritations and prolonged thumb-sucking early.
I have a number of black fillings, What can I have done to improve this.
The black filling material uses in your teeth is amalgam.
It has been used as a filling material for over a hundred years; it’s still one of the strongest materials available. However, it’s about as unattractive a filling material as you can get. There are a number of other tooth-coloured restorative materials currently available that can be used to replace old amalgams.
