Babies & Children's Teeth
As dental professionals we believe in Preventative dental care and encourage our patients to bring their children to the practice from an early age. Regular and fun check-ups from a young age will ensure children are well educated on dental hygiene and enjoy keeping their teeth clean and healthy. Preventative measures and constant vigilance will ensure that your children do not suffer from untreated dental decay with devastating effects to their growing dentition.
There are a number of Preventative treatments that our team can provide for children:
- Fluoride applications are a safe and effective way to safeguard your child’s growing teeth from developing decay. The fluoride is painted onto the surface of the teeth, helping to mineralise them.
- Tooth-coloured fissure sealants are applied to the biting surfaces of children's teeth to prevent decay.
- Studies have shown that the younger your child is when attending their first dental appointment, even if just for a check-up, the more likely they are to have a positive experience and to grow up unafraid of the dentist. Our team will take special care of your child to make them feel safe and cared for.
- Treating your child from a young age also allows our dentist to spot early signs of underbites, cross bites or overbites developing. As with most dental problems, the sooner you can start to treat these, the quicker they can be resolved.
Prevention is always better than cure, so call the practice today to make an appointment for your child.
