CHILDREN DENTIST MANDURAH

Just like adults, It is essential for children and their parents to pay special attention to their Dental Care. It is never to early to start caring for the dental health of your child. 

Researchers have identified that most dental health related issues arise at an early stage. These can potentially create a wide range of health issues later in life. If you have any oral health concerns for your child.

Come and visit our friendly Dental Team at Peel Dental Studio.

KIDS DENTAL CHECK UP IN MANDURAH

Our Dentist will look at the following:-
– Which teeth have erupted (come through the gum).
– Assessing the development of the jaw.
– Looking at the soft tissues (tongue, cheeks, lips and throat).
Checking for cavities in the teeth.
– As the child gets older we will assess how they bite together to advise whether orthodontics may be required later on.

WE GIVE ADVICE ON PREVENTIVE CHILDREN'S DENTAL CARE

  • Healthy diet.
  • Brushing techniques.
  • Fluoride treatments if necessary.
  • Fissure sealants if there is a high risk of cavities developing.

How to take care of
your child's teeth

Oral hygiene starts as soon as your child’s first tooth erupts through the gum, this is around six months of age.

Use a small and very soft child’s toothbrush and pea sized amount of children’s toothpaste. As this contains less fluoride than adult tooth pastes; if you are unsure about the fluoride content please speak to your dentist.

Brush twice a day once in the morning and before bed, cleaning the teeth and gum area. You will need to clean your child’s teeth or supervise until they are around 8 years old.

Encourage your child to spit the toothpaste out but not to rinse with water as this reduces the effects of the fluoride.

Do NOT allow your child to fall asleep with a bottle of milk, formula milk or any fruit juice as these have hidden sugars which will pool around the teeth as they sleep, leading to cavities.

Limit the amount of sugars in your child’s diet. If they do have sugary snacks and drinks keep them to meal times only and give water and healthy snacks in between.

If your child is prone to tooth decay in their baby teeth your dentist may recommend fluoride treatment as this helps to strengthen the tooth surface. Then as the adult teeth erupt through the gum, it may be advised that a protective layer is painted onto the tooth’s biting surface, which is called ‘Fissure Sealants’.

Children's Dentistry FAQs

Just like adults, it is essential for children and their parents to pay special attention to their dental care. It is never to early to start caring for the dental health of your child.

Researchers have identified that most dental health related issues arise at an early stage. These can potentially create a wide range of health issues later in life. If you have any oral health concerns for your child.

Dental care needs to begin during the infant years. Put your babies to bed with only water bottles. 

When you see the first tooth use a soft-brush on their teeth. Take your baby to the dentist when the primary baby teeth become visible. The dentist will examine the teeth and provide you with some useful information regarding infant oral health and hygiene.

One of our friendly mandurah dentist at Peel Dental Studio will be able to provide this support information to you.

Continuing the habit of brushing teeth at least two times a day will help maintain good oral hygiene. Flossing will also maintain good healthy gums. It is best to minimise or eliminate food items containing sugar. 

Regular check ups at Peel Dental Studio will help maintain sound oral hygiene where the dentist will monitor and advise your children on correct brushing and sound oral procedures.

It is your duty to look for a good toothbrush on the market and purchase it for your kid. Since the children have soft teeth, you need to purchase a soft toothbrush. In addition, you need to look for mild toothpaste that is specifically designed for the use of children. Then you need to understand the correct ways of brushing teeth. This can be achieved by visiting a dentist at Peel Dental Studio. Once you teach your children with proper habits, they will continue them for the rest of their lives. Therefore, all the parents need to pay special attention towards this!
