Does your child need education on how to look after their teeth? Do you need advice on how to care for your child’s newly erupting teeth? Are you concerned about staining or discolouration on your child’s molars? At Confident Smile Dental, we can address common parental concerns and provide quality dental care for children. It’s never too early for your child to have their first dental visit, setting them up for good dental habits for life.
As soon as your child turns two, we believe it’s time for them to visit the dentist for an oral health assessment. Being your local Mount Gambier dentists, we know there can be fear and anxiety about your child’s first dentist visit, which is why we work hard to make the visit a comfortable experience. From general examinations, gum care and oral hygiene instruction to interceptive orthodontics and more, you can rest assured that a gentle reassuring touch will be used.
With our dental services for children, we take one step at a time. Your child will meet our dentist and have an opportunity to get used to the dentist’s high-tech chair. This consultation mainly involves a visual inspection, making sure there’s nothing unusual with the child’s teeth and gums. We also count the child’s teeth using a dental mirror – a fun game that we’ve found usually fascinates the patient!
As well as including an oral examination, our dentistry for kids will assess the growth and development of their teeth to identify any risk of dental decay. We also educate the child (and parent) on brushing techniques and the importance of healthy nutrition when it comes to children’s dental care.
We pride ourselves on being a good children dentist, taking the time to answer any questions to create a gentle, positive experience that is often accompanied by plenty of giggles for both the child and the parent.
