FAQ

WHEN SHOULD I TAKE MY SON OR DAUGHTER TO THE DENTIST?

The Spanish Society of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that the first visit to the dentist be 6 months after the eruption of the first tooth and no later than the first year.

DO I NEED TO USE FLUORIDE?

Fluoride is an excellent tool to protect the enamel and reduce the risk of decay. The pediatric dentist should evaluate the individual risk of caries of your child to decide on the frequency of administration and the appropriate dose.

CAN CHILDREN EAT SWEETS?

Sweets are foods with a high content of sugar and calories, which is why their consumption should be limited and children should be taught to brush their teeth after the intake of these.

It is recommended that these foods are not given to children under 3 years of age.

MY SON / DAUGHTER SUCKS HIS/HER THUMB

Sucking the thumb is a habit that many babies perform even inside the belly. However, if it persists, it is a difficult habit to eliminate.

If your child is over 3 years old and still has this habit, ask our orthodontist or pediatric dentist for advice, since finger sucking can cause serious problems in your child’s bite.

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD THE PACIFIER BE REMOVED FROM MY CHILD?

It is advisable not to start using the pacifier before 15 days of age, restrict its use after 18 months and suppress it after 2 years.

In addition, this pacifier should be anatomical or orthodontic and should not have a flat shield.

It is important to follow these instructions because the pacifier can alter the position of the tongue and cause malocclusion.

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I REMOVE THE BABY’S BOTTLE?

From the eruption of the first tooth the nocturnal bottle should be suppressed or tooth brushing should be carried out after the use of the bottle before the baby falls asleep.

It is highly recommended that the bottle nipple be of anatomically shaped and that the exit hole not be enlarged or added sugar, honey or sweeteners to the bottle.

The bottle should be suppressed at 12-18 months of age.
