Paediatric Dentistry

The initial appointment for children differs slightly depending on age. Generally, your child meets the dentist and has an opportunity to get used to the dentist’s high-tech chair. This consultation mainly involves a visual inspection. X-rays may be taken at this visit if necessary, making sure there’s nothing unusual with the child’s teeth and gums. The dentist will also assess your child’s growth and development and identify any risk of dental decay.

Your child’s visit is often an interactive one. We will assess areas where your child misses brushing, highlight it to them and teach your child how to brush properly. Flossing techniques are often discussed and we educate your child on the importance of a healthy diet on teeth. We will also be using our own special electric toothbrush with bubble-gum flavour toothpaste that kids love.

What should I know before I come?

It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as needle, pull, drill, or hurt. We will explain all procedures to children in terms they can understand by using pleasant and non-frightening words and demonstrate the equipment in a fun and imaginative way. Every possible effort will be made to make the visit psychologically pleasant. Please do not be upset if your child cries! Crying is a normal reaction to fear. Children may be afraid of anything new and strange to them. Kindness is the greatest contribution for overcoming fear and it must be our united objective to eliminate dental fears. Each child is different and we will treat your child according to their individual needs and with input from their parents.
