We at See The Dentist, we believe in firstly keeping their teeth or remaining for life. That is why encourage parents to start their children early on a regular dental care. Our staff will not only ensure that each visit is fun and enjoyable but also a learning process so that your child is equipped to care for their teeth properly.
A child’s first oral health visit should take place at 2-3 years of age. At this stage, most of the baby teeth have appeared. An early start also ensures the best chance for a life-long beautiful smile. How you care for your children’s teeth when they are young will affect their dental health for the rest of their lives.
Young children having their first dental visit at See The Dentist will be introduced and familiarised with the dentist and the practice. Our team will monitor the development of your child’s teeth and jaws to minimise any potential problems they may face.
At this early stage we can identify bad habits such as thumb or dummy sucking, which results in skeletal changes that leads to poor appearance and function.
Poor dietary habits that are left undetected will cause holes or erosion in your child’s teeth.
Tooth and Jaw Development
By taking your children to the dentist, problems such as crowded, missing or crooked teeth will be detected as soon as they appear. The earlier the problems are identified, the less difficult and expensive they are to treat, and the better the results.
Orthodontics may be suggested if we see that your children’s teeth are erupting in a crooked position or if the jaws are developing not ideally.
If you or your children play a sport where teeth can be injured, a mouthguard is necessary to help prevent or minimise trauma from a knock to the jaws and teeth. A precisely fitting mouthguard provides the best protection.
Sealants are plastic coatings that are applied to the biting surfaces of teeth. By covering the pits and grooves on the teeth, sealants provide a barrier against decay. Sealants can give your children’s teeth added protection for years – and maybe even your own teeth!
Treatment is simple and minimal with a coat of the sealant placed on a cleaned tooth.
