Children’s dentistry

What exactly is Children’s dentistry

Kids’ oral health is closely linked to their overall health, and children’s dentistry lays the foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

Your child’s dentist will look for any developing dental issues. This enables early treatment to prevent complications such as loss of permanent, adult teeth in the future.

It also reduces the risk of infection from dental problems spreading to other areas of the body, including vital organs.

Children’s dentistry – paediatric dentistry – also supports you in your efforts to instil good oral health habits in your kids.

Furthermore, seeing a dentist from an early age gives kids a positive perception of dental care.

Preventive dental care for kids

We're here to ensure healthy teeth

Premature loss of primary teeth – commonly known as baby teeth or milk teeth – can cause remaining teeth to shift and hinder the emergence of permanent, adult teeth.

Primary teeth are vulnerable to the same problems as adult teeth – cavities and gum disease, the leading causes of tooth loss.

Preventive children’s dentistry – including regular check-ups and X-rays – reduces the risk of these issues. Check-ups also incorporate a professional cleaning to remove bacterial plaque from teeth.

Other preventive paediatric dentistry measures include:

  • Dental sealants to help prevent tooth decay after kids get their permanent teeth around the age of 12 to 14
  • Fluoride treatment to strengthen dental enamel
  • Mouthguards and nightguards to protect teeth during sports and if they grind their teeth in their sleep, respectively
Restorative dentistry for kids

Restorative dentistry for children includes:

Orthodontic treatment

Braces or clear aligners addresses the problems of misaligned teeth and bite irregularities.

Dental Fillings

Fillings to repair cavities and prevent further decay.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Used in more severe cases of tooth decay.

Tooth extraction

We help patients protect their smile

If a child’s tooth has become extensively decayed or is otherwise severely damaged, extraction may be the only solution.

And in older teens, wisdom teeth removal may be necessary, both as a restorative treatment and to prevent later complications.
