Kids Dentistry at Grange Dental Care
At Grange Dental Care, we believe it is never too early for your children to learn proper oral hygiene to help them develop life-long healthy habits. Regular check-ups with an experienced dentist, as well as daily brushing and flossing, prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Kids dentistry at Grange Dental Care emphasises education and preventative treatment to help you care for your children’s teeth.
When Should I Bring My Child In For Their First Dental Visit?
We recommend you bring in your child for their first visit at 12 months old or when their first tooth erupts, whichever occurs sooner. This allows your child to become familiar with the dental environment and our dentist to minimise dental anxiety.
What Services are Offered at Children’s Dentistry at Grange Dental Care?
Once your child begins to visit our practice regularly, we offer no gap basic dental treatments including a check-up and cleaning. We can also apply fluoride treatments and sealants to protect their teeth against decay. Should any intervention be required, our tooth-colored composite fillings are mercury-free and safe for use with your child.
Ongoing review of your child’s oral health is paramount. The dentist can detect any abnormal tooth or jaw developments and then management can be initiated to improve the alignment of the teeth.
