Good habits form over time, and the earlier you can teach your children the importance of oral health, the better. It’s our aim to help every child to have a healthy, beautiful smile in a caring, stress-free environment. We like to show all our young patients that going to the dentist can be fun!
Steps to prevent dental disease in children should begin the moment the first tooth appears. The first teeth should be cleaned gently with a soft brush and a tiny amount of children’s toothpaste that contains fluoride. Children are highly susceptible to dental decay, and preventative methods from day one will help keep their teeth healthy all the way through to adulthood.
Regular visits to the dentist are essential in order to identify any potential problems at the earliest stage possible. As a guide, we recommend that all children from the age of 2 should come and see us every 6 months. From an early age, we can help parents keep their little one’s mouth healthy with good cleaning and dietary habits. Setting a good example whilst they are young means they will be far better equipped to practice good dental hygiene once they take over the responsibility themselves.
No More Nasties: Brushing for Kids!
With a little imagination, brushing can be fun for kids! They can learn how to brush like a pro and fend off invisible nasties at the same time. It’s important for kids to learn correct brushing techniques so that they have less incidence of plaque related problems later in life.
Mouthguards For Children
One of the major causes of damage to teeth is through contact sports. We provide custom made mouthguards to minimise these effects, and to give our patient’s the best possible protection from further damage.

Dental erosion is the irreversible loss of tooth structure due to chemical dissolution by acids. Overtime, the softened enamel or dentine begins to wear, resulting in thinning of the tooth structure which in turn can modify the shape and appearance of your teeth and may also lead to sensitivity to temperature.
