We understand that not everyone may like visiting the dentist; however, it is vital that children get used to coming in to see the dentist while they are young to help them form good lifelong associations. Our approachable, down-to-earth, and easy going team are here to put your family at ease and to ensure your children always have a pleasant experience when they visit us.
While children are growing, we monitor their facial growth and dental development closely. This will help avoid crowding of teeth and jaw issues. We also assess and address factors such as large tonsils, sleep apnoea or snoring, mouth breathing, and thumb sucking.
Bring your children to see us so that we can diagnose any problems early and your child can develop a happy, healthy, trusting relationship with our kids’ dentist.
We recommend that children start seeing the dentist when their first teeth appear or by the time they turn one year old. You are welcome to bring them in earlier if you have any questions or concerns. Young children generally only need to see the dentist every 6-12 months. We will talk to you about this at your appointment.
If your child plays a contact sport, a fitted mouthguard from your dentist offers the best protection. Chat to us about the colours and styles available.
Sugary sports drinks
Energy and sports drinks contain high levels of acid and sugar. These can start destroying teeth after only a few days of consumption. Damaged enamel can cause sensitivity and susceptibility to decay and cavities.
