Child Brushing Teeth 2

The first step is the most important thing in life.

If we do things right from the start, everything will become easier. Here at Quek And Me, we have 'My First Dentist' Program to take good care of our children's dental health. 

 

A Dental checkup is recommended for ages of 6-12months, 18~24 months, 42~48 months, and 54~60months. 

Dental visits involve teeth cleansing and examination of milk teeth and erupted permanent teeth, monitoring of teeth development, facial growth, decay detection, and oral hygiene education. The program provides diet advice and dental education, including customized brushing techniques and guidance for parents to help their little ones maintain good oral health and pretty smiles.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride strengthens the teeth, protects them from acidic food and drinks, and suppresses the growth of bacteria.

 

Study shows that fluoride treatment reduces 50-60% of decay, and the result is even greater among children.

After the first molar erupts, usually around 6-7 YO,  fluoride treatment is recommended every 3 - 6 months. Some may need it more often up to 3-4 times weekly/bi-weekly based on dental condition.

Lingual frenectomy

Lingual frenectomy is also known as a 'tongue-tie release' is the removal of a band of tissue (the lingual frenulum) connecting the underside of the tongue with the floor of the mouth. 

The procedure is recommended if the frenum is causing pain or affecting proper function.

Recovery time is 3-5 days.
