THE IMPORTANCE OF CHILDREN'S DENTISTRY
It’s especially important to us to provide comfortable and welcoming children’s dental assessment and treatment.
We believe that early years education and early dental visits can eliminate fears and instil great oral health habits that last a lifetime.
Early dental exams will identify any particular areas that require attention. Children’s dental exams assess their dentition for proper eruption, spacing and crowding, dental decay and the need for fluoride application and fissure sealants.
CHILDREN’S DENTISTRY FAQS
We are dedicated to children’s dentistry and recommend that your child visit the dentist by age 2, and perhaps even a little earlier. This will allow your child to get used to the dental environment and also so that we can give you advice on your child’s oral health, supervised tooth brushing and eating habits.
Communicating the benefit of brushing is important, understanding the need to get the ‘sticky germs’ off their teeth from an early age can help.
Disclosing tablets turn plaque pink & purple so that kids can see the germs on their teeth and want to brush them off!
Electric toothbrushes can make toothbrushing more ‘fun’. Brushing with an electric toothbrush is easier too, just hold the brush against each tooth surface and let it do the work. This can be more comfortable for your child as there is no need for the scrubbing action.
Another thing you could try too, that might encourage small children to cooperate; is to have a spare toothbrush to brush their favourite toy’s teeth too.
Children’s dentistry also focuses on the protection of tiny teeth. We recommend custom-fit mouthguards be worn for all contact sports like boxing, rugby and hockey.
Damage to your children’s ‘baby teeth’ can be extremely painful, difficult to treat and can cause problems with the eruption and colour of the developing adult teeth underneath.
If the tooth falls out and is still whole, place it in a glass of milk and seek an emergency appointment with a dentist immediately. It’s important that you don’t try and clean the tooth, especially the root, leave that to your dentist to do.
If the tooth is knocked, but not broken or visibly chipped it is important for you to schedule a dental exam as soon as convenient so that the vitality and health of the tooth can be assessed and monitored.
Teeth can be straightened at any age. The ideal time to have this corrective treatment is during the early teenage years, when the teeth and jaws are still developing.
A good indication of the right time is when almost all of their ‘baby teeth’ have been lost and replaced by adult teeth.
However, early treatment may be required if there is a severe discrepancy in the top and bottom jaws, there is lots of crowding, or you think some teeth are missing.
You can book an early orthodontic consultation to keep any issues under review or to have intervention treatment.
