Children’s Dentistry

Children’s Dentistry at East Adelaide Dental Studio

Your child’s oral health affects their future smile for decades to come. Our family practice is committed to preventative approaches to care that lower your child’s risk of issues like tooth decay, gum disease and dental emergencies.

Even though your child’s primary (baby) teeth will eventually fall out one day, their health and position play a vital role in how permanent (adult) teeth develop. That’s why we focus so much on prevention and early intervention when issues are spotted.

A Great Place to Be

Familiarising your child with the dental office at a young age can help lower their level of anxiety in the future. We encourage parents to bring their children in to observe their own checkups, or to schedule a brief tour of the office so that your family can be familiar with our staff before the first appointment.

We work at your child’s pace. For first-time visits, it’s not uncommon to simply “count” their teeth, go over things like tooth brushing and just test the waters to see what your child is comfortable with.

Children’s Services Offered

Some of the important paediatric dentistry services that our office provides include:
  • Exams and Cleans  — Children need regular checkups just like adults. We recommend booking a scale and clean every six months so that any issues can be intercepted as early as possible. During your child’s visit, we’ll also review important information regarding oral hygiene habits, nutritional choices and thumb or finger sucking.
  • Sports Guards — Wearing a custom-fitted athletic mouthpiece can lower your child’s chances of developing a concussion, jaw fractures and broken teeth.
  • Emergency Care — For chipped or knocked-out teeth, our family dentist provides fast and gentle emergency care to get your child out of pain.
  • Fillings — Tooth decay is a bacterial infection that can spread into adjacent teeth and quickly erode baby teeth. Small white fillings are minimally invasive and healthier for your child.
  • Orthodontic Consultations — By age 7, we have a good idea as to how your child’s adult teeth will fit into their bite alignment. Early intervention can lower their risk of major orthodontic complications.
  • Dental Sealants — Sealants are protective coatings that prevent acid and food debris from settling into the deep grooves of back teeth.

SCHEDULE BY AGE TWO

The earlier your child sees a dentist, the easier it is to stay on top of potential risk factors. For Children’s Dentistry Glenside, contact us today!
