Our entire dental team love seeing young children, and we go out of our way to help them feel relaxed during their appointments. Dental education is an integral part of our practice, and we can teach your child about dental care in a way that is interesting and enjoyable. Our children’s dental services include regular check-ups and fissure sealants.
Regular preventive dental care is the most effective and easiest way to enjoy excellent dental health, and we suggest your child sees a dentist soon after their first teeth erupt so we can check their teeth and jaws are developing correctly. Ongoing dental care requires two comprehensive dental check-ups annually. During these appointments we can carefully monitor the condition of your child’s teeth, take dental x-rays if necessary, and we will professionally clean their teeth.
Fissure sealants are a thin layer of flowable, tooth-coloured resin that is applied to the clean chewing surfaces of adult molar teeth, completely sealing these surfaces and protecting them against decay. The process is quick, painless and non-invasive, but is extremely effective. Fissure sealants can only be applied to teeth that don’t have any fillings or cavities and are best applied soon after your child gets their adult back teeth.
