Children’s Dentistry

Do you want your child to develop healthy dental habits? We teach children how to care for their smiles for life.

Children who visit the dentist with their parents from preschool age become familiar with the dental environment and are less likely to be anxious or fearful. Regular visits also mean that minor problems can be detected before they become major problems and treatment is more simple.

The primary teeth (sometimes called “baby” or “milk” teeth) play a vital role not only in eating, smiling and appearance, but also in speech development. They also hold the space to allow developing adult teeth to grow into the correct position.

Our friendly and approachable team will help teach your children the importance of regular dental visits, diet and correct cleaning technique good habits that will encourage a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

Our dentists are trained to recognise normal growth patterns of the face and jaws in children and can offer advice to help correct any problems. (see Dental Orthopaedics)
