Preventative Dentistry

Children’s Teeth

As dental professionals we believe in preventative dental care and encourage our patients to bring their children to the practice from an early age. Regular check-ups from a young age will ensure children won’t suffer from untreated dental decay with devastating effects to their growing dentition. There are a number of preventative treatments that our team can provide for children.

Fluoride applications are a safe and effective way to safeguard your growing child’s teeth from developing decay. The fluoride is painted onto the surface of the child’s teeth and this helps to mineralise the teeth. Fissure sealants are tooth coloured and applied to biting surfaces of children's teeth to prevent decay.

We encourage children to see the dentist with their parents as soon as possible. This helps them to become familiar with the dental team and the surroundings at the dental surgery. Treating a child from an early age also allows the dentist to spot early signs of underbites, cross bites or overbites developing.
