Choosing A Children’s Dentist
Children’s dental care is vastly different from adult dentistry services. This is because other variables need to be considered, including age, cognitive development, and personality. Taking your child to the dentist for the first time can be a daunting experience for both you and your child. Therefore, you must choose a dental clinic that you trust.
At Dentapex, we are dedicated to fostering good oral hygiene from a young age and allowing your child to familiarise themselves with a dental clinic environment. This will prevent your child from forming feelings of anxiety when needing to visit a dentist. At Dentapex, we ensure that our dental clinic is equipped with the most advanced dental equipment that supports the growth of a child’s teeth from an early age. When you need a dentist in Sydney that cares for your child’s oral health and wellbeing, choose Dentapex today.
First Dental Visit
At Dentapex, we are dedicated to making your child’s first dental visit a positive experience. Building your child’s oral health habits from a young age is vital in ensuring their overall health and wellbeing throughout every stage of their lives. Therefore, we recommend that you book your child’s first appointment with us when they are one year old or when they start developing teeth.
On your child’s first dental visit with us, you will be seen by a dental therapist who focuses on kids dentistry. We guarantee that this initial visit will be positive, educational, and happy and help your child approach dental care without any fears or anxiety in the future. Our team of children’s dentists are friendly, reliable, and highly experienced in all aspects of dental health and will help your child stay motivated about boosting their oral health, even from a young age.
Kids Dental Emergencies in Sydney and Surround areas
It is common for kids to suffer from accidental falls that result in various tooth or oral-related injuries. This includes a knocked-out, chipped, or missing tooth. However, if acted upon quickly, your child’s tooth can be easily saved, and any damage to the gums can be prevented. Our team of dentists and therapists will strive to rectify any dental emergencies and find the best solutions to maintain the state of your oral health and ensure it remains in optimal condition. When your child suffers from a dental emergency, call our affordable children’s dentist in Sydney at Dentapex today.
Children’s Orthodontics Treatment
Between the ages of 9-10, we recommend that your child get orthodontic treatment. At Dentapex, our dentists will assess your child’s jaw and the development of their teeth to ensure they are growing correctly. If any developmental issues are found, we will take immediate action to find the best solutions to rectify the problem and restore your child’s dental health. Orthodontic treatments usually focus on treating functional concerns, such as cross-bites, overcrowding, growth problems, and more. If any of these issues are present, early intervention is key to improving oral health. Therefore, our experienced dentists will determine the most suitable treatment methods for your child.
Reasons for early intervention and appropriate orthodontics treatments:
- Prevents more serious issues from developing at a later age
- Potential treatment in the future may be shorter and less intensive if orthodontic treatments are utilised while teeth are still developing
- Severe dental concerns that are treated as a child can improve health later in life.
- Improved hygiene throughout every stage of growth
- Orthodontics at a young age can improve bite and jaw joint problems
