Children’s dentistry

paediatric children's dentist

We provide a friendly, comfortable environment for the whole family. As your local children’s dentist, we look forward to helping you look after your kids’ teeth from baby to teenager and beyond!

Children’s dentist services we provide include:

  • Check-ups and x-rays
  • Teeth cleaning & fluoride treatments
  • Fissure sealants
  • Oral health education
  • Growth monitoring
  • Sports mouthguards

When should I make my child’s first appointment?

We recommend that children start seeing the dentist when their first teeth appear or by the time they turn one year old.

You are welcome to bring them in earlier if you have any questions or concerns.

Young children generally only need to see the dentist every 6-12 months. We will talk to you about this at your appointment.

Get them comfortable at the dentist

It is vital that children get used to coming in to see the dentist while they are young. This will help them form good associations and avoid any fear of dentists.

While children are growing, we monitor their facial growth and dental development closely. This will help avoid crowding of teeth and jaw issues. We also assess and address factors such as large tonsils, sleep apnoea or snoring, mouth breathing and thumb sucking.

Bring your children to see us so that we can diagnose any problems early and your child can develop a happy, healthy, trusting relationship with our children’s dentist.

Fissure sealants

This safe and painless technique protects children’s teeth and prevents dental decay. We recommend fissure sealant treatment when your child’s first permanent teeth come through, usually at the age of 6-7 years and the remainder of teeth be sealed as they appear thereafter usually between 11-14 years.

A fissure (or pit) sealant is a thin, plastic film that is applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth creating a protective barrier which prevents food and bacteria getting into these teeth.

Fissure Sealants:

  • Are safe and effective
  • Are painless in application and unnoticeable after treatment
  • Prevent decay of molars and premolars
  • Should last for many years
  • Are easier to keep clean due to a smoother tooth surface
  • Reduce the likelihood of fillings in your child’s mouth

What about teenagers and their teeth?

Mouthguards

If your child plays a contact sport, a fitted mouthguard from your dentist offers the best protection. Chat to us about the colours and styles available

Sugary sports drinks

Energy and sports drinks contain high levels of acid and sugar. These can start destroying teeth after only a few days of consistent use. Damaged enamel can cause sensitivity and susceptibility to decay and cavities.
