Helping Your Child Enjoy the Benefits of Great Dental Health
If you have a young child then you will want to do everything you can to ensure they grow up enjoying great health and good professional dental care is an important part of this equation. Here at Clarence House Dental Care, we welcome young children to our family oriented practice and we can provide all the treatments they need to grow up with healthy, strong teeth and gums. Our friendly dental team can also help with dental education, showing your child the best way to brush and floss in a way that is fun for them and easy to understand.
How We Can Help Your Child
With our great range of preventative dental care treatments, good dental health has never been easier and we suggest you bring your child to visit us by their first birthday or when they get that very first milk tooth. You might think is incredibly early but there are lots of good reasons for seeing children this young.
Firstly, it will help them get used to another brand-new environment and to become accustomed to the sights, sounds and smells of a dental practice. This way they will grow up seeing there is nothing to be fearful of and they are less likely to develop phobias or anxieties over dental treatment. It is far better that they experience dental treatment in this way than having their first experience of visiting a dentist when they are in pain or discomfort.
Secondly, our friendly and extremely caring dentist in Watton will be able to gently check how your child’s teeth and jaws are developing. As they develop we can often spot the early signs of any malocclusion or bite abnormalities at a very young age. If necessary we can recommend early orthodontic treatment which can be particularly good for correcting any problems caused by thumb or finger sucking. Early treatment can help reduce the need for braces at a later stage and will ensure your child grows up with a balanced and attractive facial profile. We can also assess your child’s level of risk for tooth decay or other dental diseases and can suggest appropriate preventative dental treatments to reduce this risk.
Thirdly, we can provide personalised dental education for you and your child. Initially we can show you how to care for your child’s teeth and gums and the best way to brush and floss without causing too much stress to you both. As your child gets older and wants to brush and floss on their own, we can help them by showing them the most effective way to do this, hopefully giving them healthy habits that will stay with them for life.
Our Preventative Dental Care Treatments
Good preventative dental care begins with regular visits to our Watton dentist so we can provide the most suitable treatments. These include fluoride applications to help harden your child’s teeth and prevent tooth decay as well as fissure sealants to seal the chewing surfaces of back teeth as these are particularly vulnerable to developing cavities.
