Children’s Dental

Paediatric Dentistry

Children’s teeth are extremely important to their overall health, and we offer a wide variety of services to maintain their healthy teeth. We strive to create a calm, non-threatening environment where kids can feel safe and comfortable when receiving treatment. Children should first be taken to a dentist between 18 to 24 months. This allows the early detection of dental problems whilst also gently introducing young children to the dental practice environment.

Some of the services that we offer kids include:

Looking after your Child’s teeth

Primary teeth (baby teeth) are vital for chewing and speaking, and also hold space in the jaws for the adult teeth are developing in the gums. They start to erupt as early as 6 months, and usually have a full set by age 3. The first permanent begin to come through when a child is about 6. By 12 to 13, most children have 28 permanent teeth. The last 4 molars (‘wisdom teeth’) usually come through between 17 and 21 years.

When first teeth erupt through the gums Wipe the teeth and gums daily with a clean damp wash cloth or gauze pad. Do not use toothpaste.

At about 18 months

Use a small tooth brush with soft bristles, twice a day. Start by teaching your child how to hold the brush. However you will need to brush your child�s teeth as they will lack the dexterity.

After the second birthday

Begin using a smear of fluoridated junior toothpaste or a small tooth brush. Parents must supervise to ensure toothpaste is not swallowed. Encourage your child to spit the toothpaste out rather than rinsing out. Parents must have hands on supervision with brushing their child’s teeth until they are at least 6 to 7 years old.

Diet Advice

Baby teeth are weaker than adult teeth and more susceptible to decay and acid attack. Early childhood decay is often associated with baby bottle habits. Follow these tips:
  • Do not give your baby or young child milk, sweetened drinks or fruit juices to go to sleep with, or to suck on for a long time during the day
  • Try not to leave the bottle in your baby’s mouth whilst asleep
  • Try to change to a cup or feeding mug as soon as possible
  • Do not place honey on a baby’s pacifier

Young children can also benefit from the following tips:

  • Eat nutritious foods that are low in sugar, including vegetables, fresh fruit and nuts
  • Avoid snacking in between meals or grazing (sipping or eating sweets / drinks throughout the day)
  • Limit the frequency of sweets and avoid the really sticky ones.
  • Limit sweets, sticky snacks, soft drinks, cordials and fruit drinks
