Caring for your children’s teeth and gums may feel like a huge responsibility, but that’s why we’re here to make that job seem a little bit easier.
From their very first tooth to a full set of baby teeth, it’s important that your children understand why brushing and flossing is so important for their oral health. Our dentists and hygienists will work with you to care for your children’s teeth, providing advice and child-friendly dental products to make that morning and evening ritual a little bit easier. We can offer child-focused dental treatments such as fissure seals, which help protect back teeth against decay and fluoride treatments to strengthen the tooth’s enamel.
Attending for a thorough clean lessens the likelihood of future problems such as your teeth requiring fillings or other restorative work. The hygienist will also be able to tackle any staining that has marked the teeth.
They can also offer advice on how to look after your teeth at home as well as caring for the teeth of younger members of the family. This can include showing you the best way to brush your teeth, recommending effective dental products and providing dietary advice.
We recommend booking your child’s first dental appointment within six months of their first tooth coming through and definitely within the first 12 months.
We will do our best to make sure they feel at ease by introducing ourselves, showing them around the surgery and if necessary, they can sit on your lap for the duration of treatment. We are a warm and welcoming team and want to make your child feel as comfortable as possible. We can also offer the possibility to treat your child under Inhalation Sedation using a special gas and air to help calm their nerves. This is a very safe and effective technique.
