What Makes Children’s Dental Care Important

Children go through the most critical phases of teeth and jaw development. The primary teeth start erupting from the third month for infants. Their jaws also start developing along with the primary teeth eruption. The proper development of jaws and primary teeth is essential for the eruption and development of secondary teeth. It means that the proper growth of primary teeth and jaw influences the dental health of your child in the later years.
Therefore, the dental screening at regular intervals of time, six months to one year, for your child is necessary.

Regular dental appointments also help us to understand any dental issues they may have, including thumb sucking, tooth decay, tongue thrusting, and more. Additionally, it helps the children to understand the importance of good oral health and encourages them to follow good dental hygiene practices from their infancy.

Individualized Children Dentistry Services

At Bay Street Dental Group, we recommend that parents bring their infants for appointments when they notice the eruption of the first tooth. Usually, the first tooth erupts between three and nine months of their age.
We offer a comprehensive range of dental services that address all of the varied dental needs of your children, including:
  • Dental check-ups and cleanings

Child teeth dentistry is called paediatric dentistry or children dentistry. It is a separate branch of dentistry that is dedicated to infants and teenage children. It deals with a child’s oral health protection and preparation for healthy teeth, gums, and oral development.

We have a team of children dentists in Melbourne who are specialised in children’s oral care. We ensure healthier mouths for children throughout their life, creating a positive dental clinic experience for all.

At Bay Street Dental Group, we recommend all parents bring their kids to our paediatric dental clinic when their first tooth erupts. This usually occurs between the ages of three to nine months.


The development of the jaw and primary teeth will have an impact on the child’s oral health later in life. Hence, regular oral screenings at the age of six months to one year are necessary for the proper growth and development of teeth and gums.

Parents play a vital role in preparing their kids for the dentist. Visiting the dentist is essential for building the foundation of healthy teeth and oral health at a very young age. In addition, your kids will have a positive attitude towards dental treatment in the future. To help your child feel more comfortable, stay positive about their dental visits, and discuss the dentist in light-hearted and helpful ways. Stay relaxed and calm as this will make the visit more comfortable and manageable for your children.
