Paediatric Dentistry is the branch of dental medicine that cares for the oral health of children.
Most adults have great fear of facing a dentist's chair because of negative experiences they had as children. For this reason, we take a compassionate approach to paediatric dentistry, we do everything we can to create a fun, welcoming atmosphere to help our smallest patients feel safe and comfortable from the moment they walk through our door to the moment they leave. Our goal is to help the child discover how fun it can be to take good care of their teeth!
Parents are encouraged to remain with their children throughout the treatment and to ask all questions they may have. We go above and beyond to provide the best care for your child as we would do for our own.
An initial visit will sometimes include digital x-rays, a review of the child’s health history, a full mouth exam, and an assessment of the child’s dental needs. The gums and surrounding tissues will also be checked to identify any potential problems. Preventive treatmens will be carried out if necessary. These include:
Fluoride treatments- Fluoride is a natural mineral that builds strong teeth and prevents cavities. It supports healthy tooth enamel and fights the bacteria that harm teeth and gums
Dental Sealants - a type of preventive treatment on some teeth that are in danger of getting cavities. It is a non-invasive procedure where a special coating of white coloured resin is placed on the teeth, filling up the potential areas where cavities may form.
In addition to a wide range of treatment options, we offer guidance in how to care for your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth, teaching children and parents about the correct movements when brushing their teeth, the use of fluoride and dental floss
Preventive oral health habits -- such as regular dental care and good oral hygiene -- developed early in life can lead to better overall oral health throughout a person's life. Oral diseases, from tooth decay to gum disease can cause significant pain. Bringing your child in for dental cleanings at least twice a year is a great preventive measure that can keep the oral disease at bay.
