Creating Healthy Teeth and Gums from the Beginning

Whether your child is two or twelve – we offer personalised and high-quality treatment tailored to their specific needs.

When it comes to children’s dentistry, we place utmost importance on preventative measures to ensure healthy and beautiful teeth and gums from the very beginning. We do this through performing regular check-ups and hygiene appointments, as well as providing preventive fluoride treatments and fissure sealants on new erupted adult teeth when necessary.

Our youngest patients also love learning how to correctly use their toothbrush, as well as the fun goodie bag they get to take home. This is filled with everything their teeth and gums require for a healthy smile.

When Should Your Child Have Their First Check-up?

Our dental professionals recommend children should begin attending regular dental visits around the ages of two or three once their baby teeth have erupted.

This is due to a number of reasons, primarily because it allows our dentists to monitor and assess their dental health at such a young age. As a result, our team are able to treat any minor issues as they arise, preventing them from turning into more complex issues down the track. Additionally, it helps the infant to overcome any feelings of dental anxiety by undergoing what we like to call ‘de-sensitization appointments’. In these short but regular appointments, we help your child to become accustomed to visiting the dentist in their own time.

We recommend parents bring their little one to other family member’s appointments to familiarize them with our dental clinic. When a young child sees their loved ones undergoing simple procedures such as a clean and hygiene appointment, they become less frightened for when it is their turn to receive treatment. We like to make dental appointments with children as enjoyable as possible and do this with fun brushing demonstrations and colourful stickers. We never force a child to be in our dental clinic if it causes them distress. If a child is particularly anxious or uncomfortable, we let them come back a few weeks later in the hopes of settling their nerves. This also helps them to become accustomed to the dentist in their own time.

Safe Dental Technology You Can Trust

We utilise digital x-ray technology for all patients, including children. This high-end and advanced technology helps us to gain a comprehensive overview of a patient’s oral health, but with a much lower amount of radiation when compared to traditional x-ray machines. This allows us to treat our patients (including infants) through safe, reliable, and trusted methods.
