Children’s Dentistry Leichhardt
Your child’s first set of teeth begin to erupt during the first 6 months. By 6 or 7, they start to lose their first set of teeth, which eventually are replaced by permanent adult teeth.
Without proper oral care, children face possible tooth decay and disease that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications.
Early childhood dental caries — an infectious disease — is 5 times more common in children than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever.
At My Local Dentists (previously Leichhardt Marketplace Dental), we provide comfortable dental care and environment for your child.

Children’s Dental Care Tips
Your Leichhardt dentist will provide you with tips on how to take care of your child’s teeth at home, such as proper brushing and flossing techniques and added information based on your child’s oral health condition.
Another topic tackled is your child’s eating habits and what parents should do to help protect their child’s teeth and gums.
As a general advice, parents should keep their children away from too much sugary and starchy foods and beverages. Also, your child should NEVER sleep with juice or milk in their bottle.
Your baby’s first teeth are important since the developmental stages that are vital to your child’s future dental health depend on them.
Children’s dentistry guides parents on oral care so that they will have excellent dental hygiene as they mature.
