Dental Care for Children
Our natural dentition is made to last children a lifetime. The only reason why dental care may be necessary for a child is if we don’t watch what they eat or how they clean their teeth.
Children can learn from a very early age the skills they require to maintain healthy teeth and gums, and dental education is something we provide at the Practices.
A relationship is built up during these easy stress-free check up appointments. These visits cement in the minds of children the importance of oral hygiene and a very positive attitude toward dentistry which carries on into adulthood.
The aim is PREVENTION – to carry out all the measure at the disposal of modern dentistry to free children from the future threat of oral disease.
We pride ourselves on creating a caring and sympathetic environment for our young patients who we see as the future success for their dental health and our efforts.
Our Dentists aim to prevent dental disease rather than treat it at a later date.
Fluoride applications and fissure sealants (tooth coloured sealants) are applied to biting surfaces of children’s teeth to prevent decay.
For those children that may need extra attention, the Hygienist treatments are also invaluable.
