Positive dental experiences can shape your child’s attitude towards oral health and pave the way for a beautiful smile. It’s important to get your child to be comfortable with going to the dentist which is why we recommend starting preventative paediatric dental treatment at least by the time they turn two.
In addition, many dental problems can be spotted and treated early on including decay, plaque buildup, crowded teeth and erosion. Our friendly paediatric dentists in Werribee will make these appointments a positive, experience for both the child and parents.
Children are prone to experience various dental issues but we have a range of effective solutions to treat these concerns. Here are some of the most common dental procedures we offer in Werribee, tailored specifically for children:
When their first adult teeth emerge, it is a good idea to have it protected with Fissure Sealants (FS). It’s a good prevention method for children with a high risk of developing caries ‐ for example, a child with a diet high in sugar. They may also be good candidates for FS if their new adult teeth have deep fissures and grooves on their surface where food and bacteria can accumulate. These sealants are applied to the tooth’s grooves and fissures, preventing bacteria from penetrating and causing damage to the tooth surface.
The application is a simple procedure, and it can be a good way to introduce your child to a dental clinic. During this appointment, our experienced dentists will clean and dry your child`s tooth, prepare the tooth surface to receive the sealant, apply the sealant which will flow into the tooth’s grooves, and harden it using a strong light.
Our caring and dedicated nurses and dentists will ensure your child remains comfortable throughout their visit.
Early orthodontic treatment can make a world of difference in your child’s oral health and well-being. We provide gentle, effective orthodontic care to help your child achieve a beautiful and healthy smile.
If your child has a poorly aligned bite, crowding of teeth or a delay in the emergence of a tooth, call us to schedule a consultation. In many cases, orthodontic treatment can be avoided or shortened width early diagnosis and intervention. If orthodontics treatment is necessary, we can only determine what solution will work best for your child after an evaluation.
It is great when a child gets involved with sports, and we love hearing about our patients’ accomplishments in their footy or soccer matches. While kids need to stay active, there is also a risk of injury. In such cases, mouthguards are a MUST to protect the teeth of our little athletes. We provide custom-fitted mouthguards in an array of colours that offer significantly increased protection when compared to store-bought, generic mouthguards. We also have a range of colours that you can pick from for your customised mouthguard!
If you are an adult involved in contact sports, you are also more than welcome to come in and get your own customised mouthguard.
If your child seems nervous or anxious about their dental visit, or has to go through a big procedure such as a tooth extraction, do not worry! We have Nitrous Oxide (happy gas or laughing gas) to ensure your child is comfortable and relaxed during their treatment. It is a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen inhaled through a mask.
Occasionally, children can feel slightly nauseous during its use but this method is typically very safe and tolerated very well. The gas wears off quickly after the treatment, so children can resume their daily activities without any lingering effects.
The cost of paediatric dentistry can depend on the number of teeth that need treatment, the severity of the condition, and the type of treatment required. As a result, it may be impossible for our dentists to give you an accurate cost breakdown, without assessing your child’s mouth and oral health.
When you come in for a consultation, we will assess your child’s mouth and provide an accurate cost breakdown, to help you make a well-informed decision.
We provide flexible payment options to ensure your child receives quality dental care from the start. If you want to learn more about our payment plans, call our friendly team today.
