Children’s Dental Services In Lower Plenty

It’s common to think that dental services are typically needed only when we have a full set of teeth. Baby teeth fall out anyway, taking their decay and problems with them. However, this could not be further from the truth. Dental care begins even before babies start growing their adorable little front teeth or back molars.

At Lower Plenty Dental, we aim to provide the care your children need with gentle assistance and suitable treatment whenever required. Here’s how we can help with our children’s dental services:

Dental Therapy

Nurture your kids’ smiles with oral health therapists who promote optimal oral health and preventive care with early risk identification and management, education on oral hygiene and restorative treatments. Our dental therapy services are centred on minimising the risk of dental phobias and fostering a positive attitude towards oral health, guiding children on proper oral hygiene practices at home, addressing initial trauma management, providing trained sedation administration for procedures and comprehensive care for each aspect of your child’s dental health.

Dental Checkups & Cleaning

Any parent or caregiver with young children, or even older ones scared of the dentist, can tell you – the struggle is real. What if we told you it doesn’t have to be? You can see your children look forward to going to the dentist, taking an active interest in their oral health and keeping their developing teeth and gums healthy without coercion and bribing. All you have to do is make them comfortable with a dental setting at a young age. That’s where our friendly dentists come in.

Regular dental examinations and cleanings are essential proactive measures to safeguard your child’s oral health. These routine appointments help identify and address minor concerns early on, preventing them from evolving into more significant issues. At Lower Plenty Dental, we recommend a child’s first dental checkup before their first birthday or with the arrival of their initial tooth. This initial visit includes a thorough oral examination, allowing us to closely monitor their dental development and establish a foundation for positive dental outcomes – with gentle care and friendly experiences that set the stage for a lifetime of proactive dental care.

Dental Fillings

Cavities, a common challenge in children’s oral health, can be effectively managed with proper oral hygiene and a balanced diet. However, if you notice the onset of decay or an emerging tooth cavity, dental fillings can help remove the decay and prevent it from damaging the tooth further. Early detection can halt the decay and allow for no-drill and shorter treatments. Remember that baby teeth typically fall out before age 12, and leaving decayed teeth untreated can spread that decay to existing healthy and permanent teeth. Our durable, white composite fillings can help protect your children’s teeth, ensuring their smiles stay healthy and bright.

Fissure Sealants

Concerned about your child’s smile staying cavity-free? Fissure sealants are a simple, painless solution. They cover the nooks and crannies on chewing surfaces, protecting against decay and providing a smoother surface to make brushing these inaccessible areas easier for children.
