Our friendly team love seeing kids, and our dentists are very experienced in treating children. We’ve tried to make our practice as child friendly as possible with a toy area in the waiting room, and colouring in to do as well! Some kids don’t want to leave because they have so much fun with us!
We recommend that your child’s first dental visit can be any time after they turn 1years old. We make the first dental visit really fun so that children are introduced to the dental environment with a very positive experience. Early detection of dental problems will usually result in less complicated treatment, and better treatment outcomes. In this first visit, we will also talk about good diet & oral hygiene practices with parents and patients so that good habits are established right from the start.
Baby teeth are vital in speech development & eating, and also pave the way to proper jaw development and growth. Baby teeth maintain space for the eruption of adult teeth, so if a baby tooth has to be extracted before it is due to naturally fall out, there is more chance that your child will need orthodontic treatment.
We recommend that children attend every 6 months for a dental check-up so that if there are any dental problems, we can pick them up early, and so that we can continuously check and assess your child’s oral hygiene practices.
