Dental Care for Children

It’s vital that children are taught to practice good oral hygiene from a young age, allowing them to look after their dental health in order to prevent cavities and gum disease. For this reason, regular appointments with a dentist are recommended, helping to teach children the importance of good oral hygiene as well as allowing their teeth to be checked for any developing problems.

When your child first visits our children’s dentist, an informal examination will be performed – this is just a quick look that involves counting the teeth and identifying any signs of decay. After this first visit, the examinations will become more thorough.

What Does a Children’s Dental Check-Up Involve?

In order to deliver the best dental care for children, our dentist will: Childrens Dentistry

  • Check to see which teeth have erupted through the gum
  • Assess how the jaw is developing
  • Look at the tongue, cheeks, lips and throat
  • Check for any tooth decay or cavities
  • Assess whether orthodontics may be required

As part of our dental care for children, we also provide friendly preventive care. This includes:

  • Educating the child on the importance of eating a healthy diet
  • Showing the child correct brushing techniques
  • Potentially performing a preventative dental treatment for children, such as a fluoride treatment to strengthen the tooth surface or a fissure sealant to provide a protective layer
