Our Services | Child-Friendly (Paediatric) Dentistry
Our teeth are very important for our overall health and also our appearance, and our aim is to help you keep your natural teeth for life (or as long as possible). And because most of our good and bad habits develop in childhood it is important to help your child develop proper dental and oral hygiene habits early on in life.
Early checkups help prevent cavities and tooth decay, which can lead to pain, trouble concentrating and other medical issues. Youngsters with healthy teeth chew food more easily, learn to speak clearly and smile with confidence.
What does Paediatric Dentistry Entail?
Introducing your child to professional dental care early, by the time he or she turns one to two years of age (and not only when he or she has a problem) allows him or her to see it as a pleasant instead of an anxiety-inducing experience. This also allows the dentist to prevent and anticipate problems rather than treat them. If your child has had their first baby tooth break through, it is recommended you begin scheduling dental appointments for them every six months.
At the first visit, we will take the time to introduce your child to the procedures by performing a simple examination using a mouth mirror, and tooth cleaning. We will also teach you and your child how to properly clean their teeth at home. You could help to encourage healthy oral habits by making teeth brushing a fun activity at home, and by making your regular visits to the dentist a fun adventure that always yields some type of tooth-friendly reward.
