Preventive dental care starts with a child’s first visit to the dentist and in this regard we encourage our patients to bring their children to the practice from an early age.
Children who have regular check-ups from a young age are more likely to have positive dental experiences and grow up without a fear of dentists.
Early examinations will also ensure that children won’t suffer from untreated dental decay and require more complex and difficult treatment.
Common preventive measures for children include fissure sealants, which are tooth coloured sealant fillings bonded into the grooves on children’s teeth to prevent decay.
Fluoride applications are another safe and effective way to safeguard children’s teeth and help to reverse and remineralise early decay.
We also provide dietary analysis and advice and give oral hygiene instruction to parents who need to be responsible for the homecare of younger children.
